Giant, fish-smelling flower brings in large crowds at Eden project

A giant flower that smells like rotting flesh is in bloom at the Eden Project in Cornwall.

The spectacular Titan Arum will only be in bloom for a couple of days before it wilts and dies away.

It is normally found in the jungles of Sumatra and only a few are grown successfully in artificial surroudings.

It's also noted for the pungent smell it gives off while in bloom.
