Visitors to Norwich Castle on Tuesday, July 10, may have been forgiven for thinking they were in the company of the infamous spy, James Bond as Scott Walker, 46, from Norwich, arrived at the Norwich landmark in a 1977 Lotus Esprit.

The life-long Lotus enthusiast who first fell in love with the car when he was a youngster and now works for the Norfolk based business as the company’s UK sales manager said: “I loved the car for longer than I’ve loved the woman, she understands though, It’s a car I’ve loved since I was a child.”

“It looks exactly like the bond car there are 40 in the cars in the country, which was only made during 1976 and 78.”

Scott Walker and Belen Vazquez said their vows in front of a small audience of family and friends.
