This bumper crop of sweetcorn might have started out as a handful of seeds – but now the plants tower over allotment holder Yusuf Dhorat.

The 66-year-old, who was given the seeds by his daughter-in-law after a visit to Pakistan, never imagined they would reach 8ft.

Mr Dhorat recently celebrated 50 years since moving to Britain.

He grows vegetables from all over the world on his plot in Moorlands Road, Dewsbury.
