A SUNFLOWER in North Yorkshire has reached 11 feet, seven inches tall - and it still hasn't finished growing.

Ren Entwistle said the plant was the tallest of several from seeds she planted in her garden at Ampleforth earlier this year, and its height might be due to exceptionally good growing conditions this summer.

"I can't reach the flower and it's still growing," she said.
