A farmer has paid tribute to the NHS in the biggest way possible - dedicating a whole field to say thank you writes Emma Ferguson.

The field art shows a giant 'NHS' cut into the grass, accompanied by a rainbow - the symbol of hope that has been used throughout the coronavirus pandemic, in particular showing recognition for the work of the NHS and health workers.

The message from the ground was spotted by members of 736 Naval Air Squadron at RNAS Culdrose on their way back from training in their Hawk jets.

It has been cut into a field close to their Helston naval base, near to the Culdrose viewing enclosure on the road leading down to Gweek.

The team took some photos, as did members of the 820 Merlin helicopter squadron when they also saw it from the air.

Sharing the images on Twitter, a Culdrose spokesperson said: "The farmer wanted to say ‘thank you’ to the NHS for their continued efforts to keep us all safe."
