The owner of a Shropshire shop got quite a shock when he stumbled across a massive mushroom growing in a Much Wenlock field.
Sabri Gun, the owner of Goddards in Ketley, was driving past the field when he spotted the giant puffball mushroom. Mr Gun said at first sight he thought it was a rock but as he got nearer, realised it was actually a larger than life mushroom.
The mushroom was growing on its own in the middle of the field. Mr Gun said he believed the mushroom was extremely rare and had picked it to show his family and customers.
Mr Gun took the mushroom back to his Station Road shop, where it has been on display. However, he will not be using the mushroom in any of his delicacies as he is not sure if it is safe to be eaten.
The giant mushroom is proving to be a bit hit with customers and is drawing in big crowds.
