Man hopes motorised pram is a record breaker

A man from Stamford in Lincolnshire is hoping his new motorised pram will become a record breaker this weekend. Colin Furze has fitted the specially built pram with an engine, complete with four gears. He hopes it will be able to go at more than 30 miles an hour this weekend.

The 33 year old has spent four weeks putting together the pram with a 125cc motorbike engine hidden between the wheels. He stands on a platform behind it and uses accelerator and brake levers to control the speed though admits it's not safe enough for his one month old son Jake to travel in.
