Aaron Elliott has autism and the day was organised as a special treat - as well as to raise awareness of his condition.

He's been mad about trucks since he was about two. At first you think it's a typical little boy thing really. But as he's got older you realise it's a little bit more than just liking trucks.

I'm on a journey with a little boy that I never expected to be on. He's my world. And I just want to tell people don't be afraid of autism. Just embrace it with love. Because it's amazing.

– Rhiannon Elliott, Aaron's mum
