Giant veg records tumbled at the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show last month.

Peter Glazebrook from Newark set a new world record for the heaviest carrot at 20lbs (pictured), while Tony Glover of Swadlincote smashed the world record for the heaviest onion, weighing in at 18lbs, 11.5oz.

And a new British record for the longest runner bean was set by Joe Atherton of Mansfield. The whopper was 36in (91.44cm) long.

A Harrogate spokeswoman said: “We had a record number of entries and growers in the giant veg competition this year.”
