Lincolnshire pumpkin farmer asks public to pick their own amid worker shortage

A pumpkin farmer in Lincolnshire has come up with a novel way of tackling what he says is a huge shortage of workers in the area.

In the run up to Halloween, he is inviting members of the public to pick their own. 

The owners of Tyrell's Farm in Cowbit near Spalding say there was local demand anyway as people rediscovered their love of the great outdoors during lockdown.
