18ft snowman in Forest Gate

We’re not sure if this sets a record but at 18feet tall this snowman made many motorist and passers-by stop for a second look.

No doubt quite a few stopped to take photos too.

It was made by a dozen friends in Claremont Road, Forest Gate on Sunday. They had such fun doing it that they are already looking to create one even bigger next year if and when the snow returns.
