The world's biggest ice cream van paid a visit Great Yarmouth beach this week.

The truck - weighing in at a chunky 5.5 tonnes and around 20ft tall - rolled up to Anchor Plaza on Tuesday. And it served up giant ice cream cones with Britannia Pier as the seaside backdrop.

It came to the town as part of a national tour advertising the launch of the Skoda Octavia vRS - the fastest Skoda ever. The company had tasked a team of engineers with bringing the same qualities that go into the car to other everyday objects.

The result was every child's dream - a giant ice cream van, with monster truck wheels and four mega speakers. It took the team of engineers more than three weeks to create and stars in the new advert for the Octavia vRS, which hits TV screens on Sunday.

The ice cream van features alongside other souped-up versions of everyday gadgets including a giant toy trike and a lawnmower with multiple exhaust pipes.
