Spud news for Manx tatty!

It's spud news for the Isle of Man following confirmation the world's heaviest potato record hasn't been broken.

One weighing almost 8lb was dug up by Patrick farmer Ken Sloane in 1994.

That mark seemed to have been blown away earlier this week by a Lebanese farmer who said he'd grown one three times as heavy (pictured).

Doubts were initially raised by experts from the Scientific American website, who said the Lebanese leviathan was actually a sweet potato.

And that's now been confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records.
