Clive Bevan has succeeded in growing pumpkins so large that he needs a helicopter to move them.

Clive grew the giant vegetables in his Wellingborough allotment and tends to a patch of even larger ones in the Malaysian jungle after dignitaries asked him to grow some there. "They are already massive and they are still growing," he said. Clive's pumpkins have been used for a variety of purposes including being crushed at monster truck events for charity. At over 140kg each the new batch of vegetables are so big that they may require an airlift to transport them from one place to another.

"A Northamptonshire gardener has grown giant pumpkins more than 1."
