A 240 kilogram pumpkin is going on display at an Essex event this weekend.
The Atlantic Giant - the variety of pumpkin in question - will be at the Woodfest event at RHS Garden Hyde Hall near Chelmsford.
It will be part of a display of various squash and pumpkins created by horticulturist Matt Oliver.
The display will remain in place for the next few weeks.
