An inventor who built a real-life Iron Man suit so that he could fly through the air has earned himself a world record.

On a dramatic day at Lagoona Park, Reading, British entrepreneur Richard Browning achieved a speed of 51.53 km/h on his third timed attempt, before mistiming a turn and dropping into the lake.

He has been awarded the Guinness World Records title for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit – a brand new title created just for him.

Browning’s suit, consists of a specially designed exoskeleton, four arm-mounted gas turbine engines and two hip-mounted gas turbine engines.
