Flag gaffe Scottish Facebook users were left baffled after they were offered the option to post a status update celebrating St Andrew's Day - featuring the flag of Romania. Facebook encourages users to update their status to show that they are celebrating national holidays and other events. But for several hours Scottish users could only mark their day with a status update featuring the red, yellow and blue Romanian flag. St Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Romania, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and other countries. One user, Kevin Gilmartin, wrote on Twitter: "Oh Facebook, random Wednesday gets a camel for humpday and you can't manage a wee Saltire for St Andrew's Day?" Kathryn McBain wrote: "I think Facebook may be a little confused." Field Art An Italian land artist has created a 24,000 square metre image of Christ in a field. Dario Gambarin prepared the huge artwork using a tractor – and achieved different depths and colours with the help of a rotating harrow and a plough. The piece, entitled Suffering Christ, is intended to show the "difficult moment faced by humanity" – and commemorated the Catholic Church's Jubilee of Mercy event.

Monster Sprouts Brussels sprouts as big as golf balls hit supermarket shelves last month thanks to higher temperatures in the UK. Weighing 35g - more than twice the average and measuring up to 4cm wide, they were dubbed "monster sprouts". Sprout farmer John Clappison, from Beverley in Yorkshire, told Sky News: "We've had lots of lovely sun this summer, plenty of rain and then we've had a nice mild autumn and the crop has grown really, really well." Some people love sprouts, while others hate them - but Mr Clappison says their flavour has sometimes been altered to make them more appealing. He said: "The modern varieties have been bred to be a sweeter, more palatable taste for the younger generation."
