Robert Evans from Dilton Marsh, Westbury in Wiltshire, winner of 'Grow-your-own Crop Circle' competition, has had his winning crop circle design supersized.

Last June the 'Grow-your-own Crop Circle' competition was launched on BBC Radio Swindon and BBC Radio Wiltshire by Afternoon Show presenter, Graham Seaman.

Hundreds of crop circle kits were sent out and loads of people downloaded the instructions from the BBC Wiltshire website.

Wiltshire was off designing and growing their own mini crop circles.

By the end of July it was all over and Robert Evans was announced the winner on the BBC Radio Swindon & BBC Radio Wiltshire Breakfast Shows.

His winning mini crop circle was going to be supersized
at Roves Farm, Sevenhampton in Highworth near Swindon.

On Monday August, 11, Matthew Williams and a team of fellow crop circlers were given the task normally left to UFOs...

...to create Robert Evans' very own crop circle.

Working through the night, and against the clock they strived to complete the project.

And by first light it was done ready for Robert Evans to view his creation from the only place it can be seen... the air.

And here's the result...
