Licenced truffle hunter Melissa Waddingham found this whopping example with her dogs on the South Downs near Lewes.

The fungus, which grows underground, weighed 161g and is the biggest example of the delicacy she has ever come across.

Melissa runs educational courses on the subject, and truffle hound training classes, and can be contacted at truetrufflesandmushrooms@hotmail.co.uk
