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.
