A FESTIVE Plymstock man has handcrafted a 15-foot tall 'Rudolph the Reindeer' in his front garden made from sheets of plywood.

Phil Lamerton, who has put up the giant Christmas display in his front garden on Randwick Road, took inspiration from Pinterest where he initially saw the idea and instantly wanted to create something of that size.
