 Eyeballs ‘bulge out too far’ for man to break world record.  When the moment came to officiate his talent last night, the two professional optometrists brought the longest equipment they could – but it was not enough.Only manned with a 12mm-long piece of apparatus, they were forced to deny him the title.It is believed Mr Doyle, from Rainhill in Liverpool, hit 14mm.

 Lamenting the blunder at the city’s Vincent Hotel with his mum Jane, wife Becci, and two-year-old daughter Ruth, Mr Doyle – known as Mr Zoom – said he is determined to keep going:‘I started doing it just for fun, but then people said I could get something out of this.‘I’m disappointed not to have taken the record tonight, but it’s encouraging that it was off the scale. I’ll try again.’
