A giant pumpkin grown by a Wellingborough gardener has been carved into the shape of a man’s face.

Giant vegetable-growing Clive Bevan, who will be exhibiting at the Peterborough Show on Sunday, October 12, said he had taken the pumpkin – at somewhere between 20kg and 30kg, small by his standards – to a show in Malvern where it had been carved by Simon McMinnis.

Mr Bevan said: “He did a beautiful job. I have put it on my front doorstep and people have stopped and photographed it.”
