A surfer who rode the Severn Bore for more than seven miles broke a world surfing record, it has been confirmed.  
Railway engineer Steve King's trip on the tidal wave was the longest continuous surf ride according to the British Surfing Association.  
 
Mr King, 41, of Saul, Gloucestershire, took an hour and 16 minutes to complete the journey, reaching speeds of up to 20mph, on Friday 30 March.
