Fortunately, it remained intact after being salvaged with a telescopic handler near Southampton.

Ian Paton, 61, who grew it with twin Stuart, said: “We were going to move the pumpkin to another car park and it was so heavy the trailer overturned.

“I’m sure a lot of photos were taken – it’s not often that you see a pumpkin like this.

“I’m sure it’s going to go viral now, but it’s all good publicity.

“Fortunately the pumpkin wasn’t seriously damaged and no one was hurt – it has a few bruises but nothing major.

“It is now on display at Sunnyfields Farm where anyone can come and take photos with it.”
