An Ipswich man has issued an open challenge to gardeners across the region – after growing a huge pumpkin.

Colin Cuthbert has sent in this picture of a pumpkin he has grown, saying: “Beat this! I have not been able to move it yet – let alone weigh it. And I don’t think bathroom scales will be big enough.

“As you can see, I am sitting on it, and I am 5ft 11ins tall.”
