Colin Furze: Inside the mind of an inventor

Colin Furze is a plumber by day - but in his spare time he retreats to his garage and invents things. Not necessarily useful things.

He has invented a jet-bike and has made his own "wall of death" for motorbikes.

He also holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest pram, and more records for other unique creations.

BBC News went to meet Colin Furze in his workshop.

Please take extra care if you are inventing things in your shed. The BBC does not recommend trying these stunts at home.
