A PASTRY-mad Brit devoured more than 20 Greggs sausage rolls in half-an-hour in a bid to set a world record.
John Dawes, 43, consumed five pounds of the snacks – some 7,000 calories – as he attempted the feat.
The Amazon delivery driver's efforts are expected to bag him a new Guinness World Record, after eating 21 of the meat-filled pastries in just 30 minutes.
The Greggs fanatic, from Middlesbrough, celebrated his achievement by getting a tattoo dedicated to the iconic pastry chain.
Sitting in front of 48 sausage rolls at the start of the challenge, John munched his way through nearly half the stack on his way to food-eating history.
John told Teesside Live: "I've always loved sausage rolls, after swimming as a kid I always used to have one with tomato sauce and they just remind me of my childhood.
