Firefighters will swap hoses for aprons as they attempt to cook the world’s biggest naan bread.

And they will do it with the help of a man named “Curry”.

The crew will try to cook the gigantic naan at Eastleigh Mela Festival on July 6.

Among those organising the record-breaking attempt is Hampshire Fire and Rescue Deputy Chief Officer Dave Curry.

He said: “I am delighted that we are taking part in this multicultural event.

“We hope to promote community integration and harmony by celebrating Eastleigh’s rich heritage and communities.”

The firefighters staged a trial run at their HQ in Leigh Road, Eastleigh, helped by chefs at the Badi Mirchi and Sanjha restaurants.

The naan will be 3m x 1.2m, if successful, which would be bigger than the current world record of 2.89m x 1m.

The festival will run from 11am to 6pm at Leigh Road Recreation Ground.

It's a wonder they can spare the time, in between striking, sleeping and having days off!

Typical moaners comment. They are most likely giving up days off for this. Your world must be so depressing having to moan all the time
