Hotel chain Travelodge have revealed a bizarre request they got from a customer to have a unicorn in their room.

The customer felt the unicorn would set the mood for their marriage proposal.

Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "With over 18 million customers staying annually across our 523 UK Travelodge hotels, our hotel teams receive thousands of unusual requests from business and leisure travellers.

Where possible, the hotel's teams go above and beyond to help customers, however, there are some requests that they cannot help with.

Visitors to the new flagship LEGO store in London's Leicester Square can purchase 'Mosaic Maker' experiences, which allows them to enter a photo booth, and in less than 10 minutes, receive personalised printed instructions and a kit of bricks needed to complete the LEGO portrait.

The world's largest LEGO store, which opened on November 17, also boasts a life-size London Underground tube carriage, which is made up of 637, 903 bricks and took a staggering 3,399 hours to be built.

John Goodwin, executive vice-president and chief financial officer of the LEGO Group said: "We are excited to have finally opened the doors to the world's largest LEGO store here in London. We want to inspire and develop children through creative play experiences, and this store is all about that."

A man has achieved a world record for the highest bungee biscuit dunk.

The 24-year-old dipping champion, Simon Berry, completed the highest bungee dunk in Berkshire by using a chocolate hobnob and submerged the much-loved biscuit in a mug of tea hanging from a platform around 75 metres high.

Speaking to the Telegraph Online about his win, Berry said: "It was pretty difficult. The team helped by getting me roughly in there in the right place, but going down and having to nail that cup of tea was pretty tricky.

"(It was) absolutely incredible - the feeling in my chest and seeing everyone's smiles. It was fantastic!"

Berry was desperate to remember his triumph as a record breaker. He documented the biscuit challenge with a camera strapped to his head.

It showed him holding one wrist over the other to get a solid grip on and precision of the biscuit as it plummeted towards its target.

A man has caused an Internet debate over how to prevent plates from smashing.

Tseng Shao-Tseng took to social media to find the solution for the annoying incident, which constantly plagued his friend, and decided to share a picture of her dilemma on Facebook.

Since posting the picture, more than 16,000 persons have responded to the picture and shared their thoughts.

One social media savvy person said: "Just break the glass where the plates are not in contact with it and use your hands to move the plates. The glass must be cheap."

Another user suggested that they not open the cabinet door.

However, Tseng has admitted that his pal has finally resolved the problem.

Tseng told the Mail Online: "She opened one door slightly and used her hand to hold the plates, then she pushed the door further."
