Morrisons has come up with a dangerous gift idea for Father's Day: a burger so large it might give your father a heart attack.

Aptly branded the "Daddy of all Burgers" this giant lump of meat is 18cm in diameter, weighs the same as a football, and is just £3.

The monster-burger is four times the size of a normal burger, so Morrisons has also created a bread bun to go with it, which shoppers can buy for 50p.

Morrisons' "butchery expert" Paul Robinson said that all the "mammoth burgers" will be made by hand.

"We think many dads will aim to eat the whole thing," he said. "But if their eyes are bigger than their belly, they can always share with their family."

The burger is not the over-sized item drawing attention to Morrisons this week. The supermarket's annual general meeting takes place this Thursday, and influential shareholder group Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) is calling on investors to reject the retailer's pay report.

In particular, ISS is kicking up a fuss about chief executive David Potts' pay. In 2016, Potts received a total pay package of £2.8m compared with £2.3m the year before.

ISS is worried about Potts’ long-term share awards rising from 240 per cent of his salary to 300 per cent, despite his targets being reduced.
