Offbeat News: Replica volcano in back garden

A couple have built a replica volcano in their back garden - which ‘erupts’ with plumes of smoke.

The 6ft high mount takes pride of place in Brian and Faith Butler’s half-acre garden, powered by a smoke machine which discharges every 15 minutes.

Brian came across the idea after visiting some gardens in the Loire Valley, France, and his creation will be on show to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme.
