Staff and students from Easton and Otley College took around a week to build the winning entry outside the flower tent.

The college also took a silver gilt medal in the flower tent for a display incorporating a car and large metal butterfly.

Farming students also picked up rosettes, including a reserve special and first place for showing red poll cattle.

Horticultural lecturer, Andy Snelling said he was “delighted” with the award.
