Managing Director of The Guinness World Records, Alistair Richards:
"We're delighted to award the Stephen Lee match fixing inquiry the accolade of the longest inquiry of all time. The previous holder was Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in North England. They conducted an inquiry into an alleged distpute over how 'square' the pavements were meant to be in the main high street. The inquiry went on for four and half years and was dismissed after one of the members of the inquiry board died of boredom. The WPBSA inquiry has lasted five years and we're confident there won't be a conclusion for at least another five years. This is a sensational achievement for everyone at the WPBSA and World Snooker. Well done!"
Stephen Lee continues to deny all allegations of match fixing and also maintains he's never visited Basingstoke high street.
