Birmingham comic Jasper Carrott has tram named after him

Comedian Jasper Carrott has unveiled a tram named after him in his home city of Birmingham.

He said it was a "wonderful honour" in his speech to the crowd.

It is the first tram in the country to run without overhead lines along its entire route and is powered by a battery.

Other trams on the West Midlands Metro network have been named after Ozzie Osbourne and Cyrille Regis.
