A giant earthworm named Dave has been found in the UK.

The worm measures a huge 40cm and goes into the record books as the largest ever found in the UK.

It was found in a vegetable plot in Widnes.

The worm was found by Paul Rees and given the name ‘Dave’ by his stepson George.

The worm weighed 26g which is about the same as a small chocolate bar.

Dave has been preserved forever at the local museum.

  1. I really don’t think they should have killed it! Why didn’t they just let it live in a small habitat at the museum or just put photos near some facts?
