Mushroom fit for a banquet

AN EAST London man is preparing for a fungal feast after he found a giant mushroom in Southernwood on Wednesday.

Aubrey Els , 63, who owns a garden service company, said he had been alerted to the monster specimen by one of his workers as they were about to leave the house where they had been working.
“He shouted nal’ikhowa (here’s a mushroom) and I had to stop … when I saw it I was amazed at this freak mushroom … I’ve never seen anything like this,” Els said.
