A bumper crop of giant pumpkins impressed record numbers of visitors at Bungay's pumpkin parade on Saturday evening.

About 6,000 people flocked to the town centre, where 150 carved pumpkins adorned the paths and windows.

Organiser Deirdre Shepherd said: “We grow all our pumpkins from seed, and this year's was a real bumper crop. I don't think there was one lantern which didn't need two people to carry it.

“It was fantastic and there was even a little bit of mist, which added to the spooky atmosphere.”
