If you go down to the woods today...you'll find them carpeted with a bumper crop of wild mushrooms.

Foragers are heralding a vintage year for wild mushrooms after the hot summer and mild autumn brought about a glut of the woodland delicacies.
The warm weather has produced the best crop of wild mushrooms in eight years, according to experts.
With temperatures above average for the time of year, forests and fields around the UK have been bursting with the much sought-after fungi.
It is a stark comparison to last year when heavy rain and cold temperatures in autumn and winter all but wiped out the country's wild mushrooms.
Brigitte Tee, the only person to have a licence to pick mushrooms commercially in the New Forest, described this year's mushroom season as "phenomenal".
