Meet the man hoping to break a speed record in a tuk tuk

What started out as a drunken online purchase by a father of two teenagers, could next week lead to a world speed record.

Subject to weather conditions, Matt Everard will on Monday aim to push his three-wheeled Tuk Tuk beyond the current top speed of 68 miles per hour.

He recently brought the vehicle, that's undergone a £20,000 pound facelift, to the capital for us to see.
