An engineer from Norfolk believes he has created the world's first jet powered classic mini.

Andrew Pleszko from Thetford built the car after he was challenged at last year's Mini in the Park event at the Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire.

He returned to this year's event at the weekend to put it through its paces in front of thousands of spectators.
