    A group of friends have completed their bid for a new world record for the highest altitude formal dinner.

    Six Britons and one Australian had a five-course meal 22,000ft up Lhakpa Ri mountain in Tibet on May 3.

    The team wore white ties and top hats and carried up tables, chairs, silver cutlery, floral centrepieces, a candelabra and their food and wine.

    The meal helped to raise money for the British Lung Foundation.

    The team is awaiting official confirmation from the Guinness Book of Records, says BBC News Online.

    Although they actually climbed 23,113ft, hurricane-strength winds forced them back down to a more sheltered point at 22,326ft to hold the dinner, team leader Henry Shelford said.
