London: A UK man has smashed the world record for 'most cars pulled by one man' by dragging 14 cars over a distance of 18 feet and two inches.

Simon Plant, 42, of Findern, South Derbyshire, pulled a rope attached to 14 Ford Fiestas, weighing 20 tonnes combined, at Motorpoint in Derby, earlier this week.

He pulled the cars over a distance of 18 feet and two inches, breaking the previous record of pulling 12 cars over 15 feet, 'derbytelegraph.Co.Uk' reported.

Plant said this was his third attempt at the world record.

"I wasn't going to give up. We all have goals in life and if you keep pushing and pushing you'll get there. It was a tough challenge but thankfully it was a case of third time lucky," Plant said.

Plant previously held a world record 11 years ago when he pulled a 30-tonne truck a distance of 100 feet.
