Dairy-daft Peter Hayward is udderly devoted to his bizarre hobby - collecting vintage milk bottles.<br />
<br />
The 70-year-old has devoted the last 30 years to building up a whopping collection of more than 1,000 bottles.<br />
<br />
Peter, a former dairy worker, scours the south west of Britain in search of rare bottles emblazened with the colourful logos of old dairies.<br />
<br />
And since retiring 16 years ago his collection has swelled so much that he has been forced to turn his garage into a mini museum.<br />
<br />
Peter's obsession with milk started as a 10-year-old when he helped his local milkman on his weekend rounds to earn some pocket money.<br />
<br />
He later joined Express Dairies as a distribution manager, working alongside hundreds of independent dairy farmers.<br />
<br />
When he retired in the late 1990s Peter had amassed a sizeable collection in his office - and decided to devote his free time to growing it.
