IT SOUNDS cheesy, but a student has created a crown from a giant truckle of West Dorset cheddar in Lyme Regis.
Lyme Regis cheesemonger Justin Tunstall, based at the Town Mill, commissioned artist Camilla Johnstone to create the sculpture from the 27kg Ford Farm cheese.
Camilla, 21, from Charmouth, was delighted to be presented with the challenge of working with cheese.
She said: “It was a great opportunity to try something new and push myself in terms of dealing with a totally foreign sculpting material.
“It will also give me an edge with my portfolio.
“After all, who else is going to be able to boast a crown made out of cheese?
