A Northamptonshire gardener has grown giant pumpkins more than 1.5m tall (5ft) in the Malaysian jungle.

Clive Bevan was approached by Malaysian dignitaries who had heard about the giant fruit and vegetables he grew in his Wellingborough allotment.

He has visited Malaysia three times to plant and tend the pumpkins and says they are "bigger than armchairs" and he would need a helicopter to move them.

"They are already massive and they are still growing," he said.

They are so heavy - Mr Bevan estimates more than 140 kg (about 20 stone) - that he does not think he could get them on a truck once they are full sized.
