Fenland hunt for rare snowdrop draws a blank

A plant and seed company in Suffolk paid a world record £725 for a single bulb of the Elizabeth Harrison variety of snowdrop.

BBC Look East went in search of another rare and sought-after variety, named Grumpy because each of the flowers has a face, which was discovered in Cambridge and is grown nearby in a secret location.
