Obiter was getting a little weary with ice bucket challenges, but we thought the mass drenching of 40 lawyers merits a mention. Leicester firm Douglas Wemyss Solicitors brought traffic to a standstill when its staff got soaked in the ice bucket challenge at their city centre office.

‘We like to do our bit for charity,’ says Sameer Karim, chief executive. The firm has donated £1,000 to Macmillan and nominated Leicestershire cricket star Paul Nixon, fashion guru Gok Wan and music stars Kasabian for a soaking.

Now, can anyone top 40 victims?
