A forklift was used to carry an unusual load at a New Zealand port in what was believed to be a national record.

Otago Daily Times reported a crowd gathered at the Port Otago wharf during the Port Fest M'eat Drink and Be Merry festival and watched a haggis weighing almost 100kg being loaded onto a forklift.

Haggis maker Brian Lane, who makes up to five small haggises a week, weighing 6kg each, said his haggis's weight was a New Zealand record.

Lane used an ox stomach for the haggis's outer skin because it was bigger than the traditional sheep stomach.

More than an hour was spent stuffing the 97.85kg haggis before it was slow-cooked for six hours.

Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish consisting of a sheep or calf's heart, liver and lungs minced with suet, onions, oatmeal and seasonings, boiled in the animal's stomach.
