The girlfriend of an inventor from Stamford says she won't be swapping her regular pram for his high-speed version for transporting their one month old son Jake.
Charlotte Stapling is used to watching her 33 year old boyfriend Colin Furze create mad-cap contraptions. He already holds the world record for the fastest mobility scooter. But she says she doesn't fancy testing out his new 50mph pram just yet.
