Marilyn Monroe and the Exorcist help carve Hull pumpkin business

A man who has been carving intricate designs into pumpkins for years has turned his hobby into a business.

Gareth Glover, a horticulture student from Hull, said his "normal work stops" in the run-up to Halloween.

He sources his pumpkins from a farm in Spalding, Lincolnshire, which grows and sells about four million pumpkins a year.
