Thousands of people in fancy dress narrowly missed creating a world record for the number of pirates in one place.The gathering at Penzance in Cornwall failed “by a few” to hit the 15,000 target set by Hastings in East Sussex, organisers said.In 2014 another attempt came just 77 short of the title. Pirates had to have two accessories, like a sword or eye patch, and included local Conservative MP Derek Thomas and sports minister Tracey Crouch.
