A Gloucestershire food artist has created a welcome home portrait of British astronaut Tim Peake.

Prudence Staite made it entirely from roast dinner ingredients, which is one of the foods he said he wouldn't have been able to eat on his six month expedition.

It took 20 hours to build and contains 2.5 kg of roast potatoes, 500g carrots, 400g garden peas, 3kg cauliflower, 46 Yorkshire puddings, 2.5kg of meat and 1 litre of gravy.
