A couple who made their name creating punk pottery the year after punk rockers the Sex Pistols sang an anarchic version of the National Anthem have produced a heart-shaped teapot to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Potters Tony and Anita Carter, both 61, launched their business with a beaker which had a safety pin through it in 1978 - the year after the Queen celebrated her Silver Jubilee and the year after the Sex Pistols released God Save The Queen.

The Carters, who are based in Debenham, Suffolk, specialise in making teapots.

One of their latest offerings is red, white and blue, heart-shaped, has a picture of the Queen on the front, a Union Flag on top and costs more than £60.

They have also produced a Diamond Jubilee flag teapot which costs around £50.
