An ice-cream hero has drawn hundreds of shoppers with free treats from the world's smallest ice-cream van.
The van is just 47 inches long and 39 inches high, with a top speed of just 12mph.
And shoppers at Intu Chapelfield in Norwich had no need to fear road rage from its driver, ice-cream man 'Mr Happy'.
The van is so small it can even fit into the shopping centre's lifts, and it even has reversing lights and a siren.
Sheridan Smith, the shopping centre's marketing manager, said although he offered only one flavour, it was enough to please.
She said: 'Just vanilla but with all the sprinkles and sauces you could ever need.'
Shoppers swarmed in minutes to get in on the 300 free cones jammed into the tiny van.
