Stuttgart, Germany (dpa) - Twenty German men stretched out their handlebar moustaches and beards end-to-end to achieve an entry in the Guinness Book of Records on Sunday.

The beard chain, held together with hair slides and setting lotion, reached a length of 19 metres - five metres short of the world record set in November 2004.

"The entry (in the Guinness Book of Records) is more important than the record," said Erwin Fetscher, president of the German Association of Beard Clubs.

The Guinness book only recognises records if it is informed of the record attempt in advance and approves it - something which did not happen with the world record.
