York ice cream boat makes a splash
A floating ice cream parlour has become a summer hit with visitors to the River Ouse, in York.
Businessman Steve Blakeman built the unique vessel from a tugboat, from Hebden Bridge, and an ice cream van, from Robin Hood's Bay.
The boat is equipped with a serving hatch on both sides to allow tourists on either bank of the river and on the water to enjoy an ice cream.
