WALES: A Harry Potter superfan has been awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest Harry Potter memorabilia collection in the world.
Victoria Maclean, from the village of Tonna in North Peat Talbot, Wales, has accumulated an impressive collection of 3,686 items, consisting of official Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise.
Ms Maclean has surpassed the previous record of 3,097 pieces, which had been held by Menahem Asher Silva Vargas of Mexico City, Mexico since 2013.
Ms Maclean’s memorabilia collection was inspected by two independent witnesses, one of whom was a specialist in official Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise.
Her certificate for having the largest collection of Wizarding World memorabilia was presented to her at her home in February.
“The Niffler is well and truly out of the bag,” Ms Mclean wrote when she announced her achievement on Instagram.
