Giant pumpkin boat man crosses Solent

An artist has crossed the Solent from Gosport to the Isle of Wight in a pumpkin powered by an outboard motor.

Dmitri Galitzine sourced the 800lb (360kg) squash at the Mere Brow Giant Pumpkin Show in Lancashire.

On Wednesday in Portsmouth he set a new world record of exactly two minutes in another pumpkin for the fastest 100m paddle.
