A teenager from Workington has taken prom preparations to a whole new level after spending six years fixing and refurbishing a damaged Mini to travel to the event in.

Aiiden Gregory was given the car when he was just 10-years-old. His father, Mark, had owned a Mini and following in his footsteps, Aiiden also wanted to own one.

The car, which is older than Aiiden, is 24-years-old and has been stripped back and completely refurbished; a process that has taken six years to complete.
