Events have taken place across the region today to highlight the amount of food waste generated by families across the UK.

It's estimated that each household wastes around £680 worth of food annually.

A Big Lunch 2013 was held at Bestwood Country Park in Nottinghamshire, and another at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

The events have been organised by the Eden Project.
