A North Sea ferry has grown an enormous conk in support of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day. DFDS Seaways attached the inflatable hooter to the bow of the 32,000-tonne King of Scandinavia while the ship was alongside the Newcastle ferry terminal.

The nose measures six metres in diameter and is believed to be the biggest red nose the world has ever seen. “Comic Relief is an incredibly worthwhile charity,” said John Crummie, UK managing director for DFDS Seaways.

“We really felt that Red Nose Day was something that our guests would support and would be keen to donate to, plus of course it is great fun! Our donations are being collected not only this week but across the year.”
