'Vampires' gather in Whitby Abbey

Vampires gather in the grounds of Whitby Abbey following a successful Guinness world record attempt to gather the largest number of vampires together in one place, in Whitby, north-east England on Friday. The world record attempt took place on the 125th anniversary of the first publication of Bram Stoker's novel 'Dracula'. Stoker visited Whitby in 1890 and it's understood that the town and 13th century Gothic ruins of the Abbey provided inspiration for Dracula.
