AN EXCEPTIONALLY long Hula Hoop has been found in Stroud.

The giant hoop - or perhaps tube - was found in a beef-flavoured packet of the snack by Helen Hollywood, a Youtuber who films herself exploring abandoned buildings.

Helen was shocked to open the packet and pick out the rogue crisp in one of the nations favourite old school crisp brands.

To cheer up the Monday blues, Helen turned her find into a smiley face.    

"I should get a trophy or some prize for uncovering this beefy beast," she Tweeted after making her discovery on Monday.

"That's practically a penne pasta!" exclaimed one of her followers.

"It's so much bigger - it's enormous. I want to eat it but I'm afraid," Helen replied.
