HOW about this for a different sort of 'big foot'!

The Daily Express says that rugby player Carl Griffiths can't get a game for his village side because he literally has become too big for his boots.

Carl is believed to have Britain's biggest feet and he can't find a new pair of size 21 boots.

Standing 6ft 8in tall, he has been playing in size 18 boots for the past three years - with his toes curled up in the ends but after keeping them together with black sticky tape they have finally fallen apart.

Carl, from Carmarthenshire, West Wales, is now appealing for help to find a new pair of boots that fit.

Shoppers who visit a Tesco supermarket in Tiverton, Devon are often greeted by the store's own cat, reports the Daily Mirror.

Apparently tabby Mango is a regular at the store and is happy to pose for pictures with visitors. He spends much of his time sleeping in the foyer, hiding amongst stock or curled up on the store's entrance mat.

He has become so well known that an unknown customer has set up a Facebook page for the cat which pictures showing him amongst barbecue coals, hiding in cardboard boxes and playing with children.
