Pumpkin grower Ian Paton is celebrating after his supersized squashes grew to their largest ever size.<br />
<br />
Each one of his six pumpkins, cultivated at Pinetops Nursery in Hampshire, grew at an astonishing 50lbs a day for three weeks, guzzling 150 gallons of water a day before weighing in excess of 2000lbs - more than a Smart car.<br />
<br />
The largest pumpkin measured just shy of a staggering 20 feet in circumference.<br />
