The world's meatiest sandwich

A British chef has made what is claimed to be the world's meatiest sandwich.

Tristan Welch's creation is crammed with 41 cuts of meat and reportedly takes ten hours to eat.

The massive sandwich stands 15 inches high, 24 inches wide and tips the scales at more than two stones.

It contains 1,445 grams of ham, two kilograms of salami, turkey and bacon, one kilogram of sausages and 720 grams of chorizo.

A sprinkling of salad, cheese and gherkins complete the sandwich, which took four hours to make.

It was made to mark the launch of TV programme Man vs Food Nation on Food Network UK.

The new show sees host Adam Richman travelling through the US encouraging people to take on daring food challenges.

Nick Thorogood, from the Food Network, said: "The world's meatiest sandwich is an epic creation.

"We expect only the very brave will take on the challenge and attempt to eat it."
