Pupils from Deer Park Primary School in Chesterfield have posed with their 110kg pumpkin which won a competition organised by the Royal Horticultural Society.

The giant fruit has been carved up for eating as part of the society's Big Soup Share - a week-long celebration of school gardening in which 1,000 schools across the country cooked their own-grown produce for friends, family and the local community.
