Record-breaking gathering of "vampires" in England

A total of 1,369 people dressed as vampires gather in the grounds of Whitby Abbey in England's North Yorkshire, to set a new world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as the ghoulish character, breaking the previous record of 1,039 set in 2011. The event was organised by English Heritage, a charity that maintains historic buildings and commemorates famous residents, to mark 125 years since Bram Stoker's Dracula, inspired by the seaside town, was published in 1897.
