    A rare fungus that smells like rotting flesh has been spotted by a couple in their Berkshire garden, marking only the sixth time it has ever been seen in the UK.

    The couple have now counted 13 of the crimson cages sprouting up on their lawn.
    Yikes!

    'Clathrus ruber is generally considered to be a native of warmer southern Europe, so it's interesting to see it popping up in Berkshire.'
