Adult-sized 'Little Tikes' takes to the road

A roadworthy version of a children's toy car has been built.

John Bitmead constructed an adult-sized copy of a Little Tikes toy car, which takes petrol, has a tax disc, and can reach speeds of up to 70mph (110km/h).

Costing £4,000 to build, it also includes an airbag, headlights and mirrors.
