A PENSIONER is puzzled about an enormous mushroom which has grown in his garden. Jan Wocial, 70, first noticed the whitish-grey fungi in his garden in Addison Road, Bromley, about three weeks ago. It was only slightly larger than normal but following the recent heavy rain - it mushroomed to 96cm wide. The retired factory worker wants readers to help him identify the mushroom because he wants to know if he can eat it. The grandfather-of-four said: "I'm looking at books about mushrooms and I cannot find anything like it. "It feels rubbery and smells of mushroom and I think it could go in a lot of omelettes." If you can identify the mushroom or have anything strange growing in your garden, call the newsdesk on 01689 885725. Visit www.newsshopper.co.uk for more video news.
