    Banana tree

    Staff at a van hire company near the town has discovered the fruit growing on a plant in their reception area:

    Banana plant

    Van Monster in Carnaby bought the plant for £5 10 years ago and it seems to be thriving.

    Gardening expert Doug Stewart says it is so healthy because it has been extremely well looked after.

    He says: "To see one this healthy growing in an office is really exciting."

    Quote Message: There is a light just above it so it is bathed in the fluorescent tube light and it is put outside sometimes in the Bridlington summers, so that would have given it a bit more light. It's watered nicely and they feed it. " from Doug Stewart Gardening expert, BBC Radio Humberside
