AN incredible 150 people have (hopefully) carved their way into the record books.

The record attempt – for the highest concentration of people cutting ham – saw the group descend on Benarraba, near Ronda, from all over Spain on Sunday.

The cutters each had to make five slices of ham in two minutes, with a maximum width of 1.5mm and a minimum of 0.5mm.

Portions of the giant plate of ham were sold for €3, with profits going to charity.
