If finding a way out of the Brexit tangle is confusing new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, perhaps he should try walking it out.

And where better than an unusual summer attraction in Undley, near Beck Row.

Undley Farm has opened its Brexit maize maze, where participants are given a map and tasked with finding 25 of the 28 EU countries, as well as finding a way back out of the maze once they are all ticked off.

It takes roughly an hour to complete and is proving popular with the families who have tried it so far, while completed entries will not only go into the 'Undley referendum' but be in with a chance of winning £200, £100 or £50

Farm owners Sally and Anthony Pooley, who are behind the farm's popular pumpkin patch events each October, has created a summer attraction and maize maze for the first time this year, with the doors to its '31 days of family fun' event open every day until the end of the month.

Also on the agenda are informative guided farm walks, where visitors can learn about farming and see thousands of pumpkins growing in preparation for Hallowe'en.

The farm also has a giant sand mountain with slide; two sandpits (one covered) complete with deckchairs, buckets and spades; straw bale pyramid; space hopper slalom course; 27-metre farm-themed inflatable obstacle course; pumpkin bouncy castle; walking pet balloons; lucky dip and refreshments.

Tickets include all attractions (refreshments extra) and cost £10 adults, £8 children (under threes free) or £32 for a family tickets (two adults/two children or one adult/three children).
