A man from Gwent in south Wales won an award at the East of England giant vegetable competition for a tomato he grew. Ian Neale, 72, of Langstone, Newport, set a new British record for a tomato which weighed in at 6.1 pounds. On his record, Mr Neale said: “I’m already planning for next year – it’s like running a mile. You do it once and you just want to keep it going.” He now holds four world records, but this labour of love started out as just an activity to keep himself busy. “I spend about 60-80 hours a week tending to my vegetables, and it is great for a retired person like myself,” he said.
