Harvey Price, son of former glamour model Katie Price, has set a new world record for the longest drawing of a train.

The 21-year-old, who has multiple disabilities including autism, Prader-Willi syndrome, septo-optic dysplasia, and a learning disability, created a 21.3-meter-long picture of his favourite train, a Thameslink engine and carriages.

Harvey began the challenge during Mencap’s Learning Disability Week and spent four weeks working on the artwork at the National Star College in Gloucestershire, where he lives.

To be eligible for a Guinness World Record, Harvey had to create a drawing longer than 20 meters.

Adjudicators from Guinness World Records travelled to the college and, with the assistance of staff, unrolled the drawing in the courtyard to measure it.

After confirming that Harvey had indeed set a new world record, he was presented with a certificate in front of his mum, teachers, and friends.

Harvey is one of several 'Mencap myth busters' who aim to challenge misconceptions about learning disabilities and advocate for change.

His mum, Katie Price, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled for Harvey. I can’t believe he’s got his own Guinness World Record. It’s fantastic.

“He’s worked so hard on completing his drawing and I think he’s done amazingly well.

“We officially have a Guinness World Record holder in the family and everyone is so happy for him.”

Louise Adams, Mr Price’s art tutor, said: “Harvey worked incredibly hard on this 21-metre train.

“It was a very physical challenge but Harvey demonstrated what a focused young man he is with an impeccable knowledge of trains.

“We are very proud of Harvey for what he has achieved throughout this challenge.”

The record was achieved under the Guinness World Records impairments initiative, developed alongside Mencap, which aims to provide reasonable adjustments for record bids to be more inclusive for people with learning disabilities.

Alison Pike from Mencap said: “Harvey is continuing to bust myths and preconceptions about what it means to live life with a learning disability, and we are delighted that his passion for trains has led to him being a world record breaker.

“We’re looking forward to continuing our work with Guinness World Records to encourage more people with a learning disability to take on a world class challenge.

“Who knows what weird and wonderful record could be set next.”

Will Munford, a Guinness World Records adjudicator, highlighted the artistic talent, patience, and focus required to set the record.

He said: “This record in particular that Harvey has achieved showcases artistic talent, the patience and focus required to set a Guinness World Records title and it is an honour to adjudicate it.”
