Twin brothers who spend hours each day tending to their pumpkins are about to smash the record for the largest one ever grown in Britain.

Stuart and Ian Paton, 56, use 100 gallons of water daily to help their gigantic squashes grow - and they increase in weight by 60lbs a day at their peak.

The brothers are the current UK record holders, with a pumpkin they grew last year weighing in at the biggest ever - 161 stone (2254 lbs).
