Barnaby Carder - who calls himself Barn the Spoon - spends his days sitting in a London shopfront, painstakingly whittling wooden spoons.

After being apprenticed to a wooden furniture maker, he spent three years travelling around forests - sleeping in the woods and carving spoons from the trees.

He ended up saving enough money to open his tiny shop in Hackney last year, from which he creates the spoons using timber harvested from Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.

The spoons are then sold - for between £12 and £15 - to passers-by.

BBC News went to meet Barn the Spoon to find out more.
