Measuring just 47 inches long and 39 inches high - and with a maximum speed of 12mph - the Nice Cream Van will be wel-coned when it visits intu Chapelfield on Monday, August 14 from 11am.

It comes after new, but perhaps unsurprising, research showed that eating ice cream makes people happier, and is among the top 10 activities that put people in Norwich in a good mood during summer.

Other answers include taking a trip to the beach, having a barbecue and going on holiday, while the survey showed that 76pc of overall respondents feel happier in summer than in winter.

Sheridan Smith, marketing manager at intu Chapelfield, said: 'We're delighted to have created what we believe is the world's smallest ice cream van, but the real win will be seeing the smiles it puts on people's faces at intu shopping centres around the country for those lucky enough to get free ice cream.'
