WOW! That's quite a floor to carpet.

But at least the guys tackling the job have had plenty of practice – it is a contract Hereford firm Wyvern Flooring has fulfilled every year for the past 20.

The company, based in Faraday Road, supplied and fitted the 2,500sq metres of carpet to the Royal Albert Hall in London for the Lloyds underwriters' annual dinner.

Five fitters and two apprentices took about 10 hours to complete the work.

As usual, the carpet was removed following the event.
