Brazil World Cup 2014: Derbyshire's Dennis provides lawnmowers

Lawnmowers made in Derbyshire will be helping to keep World Cup pitches neatly preened.

Toby Clarke, from Dennis Mowers, said the Kirk Langley firm has been providing mowers for most of the big tournaments, including previous World Cups, since Euro 2008.

This year the factory has built more than 30 machines to be used at all 12 stadia.

The engines are made in Japan but all the other components are made at the Derbyshire factory.

Carol Hinds reports.
