Jaws has come to Suffolk after a great white shark was built in the snow of a Kesgrave garden.

Pictures of the giant shark in the town have proved a hit on social media after local resident Peter Edgecombe made his Spielberg-inspired creation in his front garden.

Dog walkers and children alike have stopped to take pictures with the shark – and now a wintry version of Pac-Man has also appeared.

Mr Edgecombe's wife, Rebecca, said Peter had been inspired to make a Jaws sculpture out of snow because of the couple's love for horror and thriller films, and that he wanted to make people smile.

Mrs Edgecombe-Mutimer said: "He is really creative and certainly pulled it off.

"We have had so many people walk past and take photos today and lots of smiles from children, I think it is nice to lift people with the current lockdown going on and quite a few people have said it has made their day.

"He absolutely loved doing it, he is a big kid at heart."
