Annoyed by people making your carpets all muddy? Really want to emphasise the importance of people wiping their feet? An Indian doormat may have the solution you're looking for - after creating the world's longest doormat, measuring more than 330 feet.
The mat, made by Travancore Cocotuft Ltd, is just over 1.2 metres (4ft) wide, 101.6 metres (333.3ft) long and weighs 999 kg.
Company spokesman Alfred Michel said: 'Guinness World Records have asked us for the basic information and we are in the process of preparing that and once they are convinced, they will visit us to see the doormat.'
The mat, made of 470,000 tufts of coir hair taken from the outside of coconuts, took six months to make.
