And finally… Man spends £10,000 transforming M&S lorry into 2 bedroom house
A Marks and Spencer delivery lorry has been transformed into a £10,000 home featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The man behind the lorry, which also comes with a bath, sliding patio doors and a lift, has lived in it for two years.
Iftikhar Azam, 43, came up with the idea when he found himself in a personal rut.
He purchased the lorry for £3,500 four years ago before turning it around.
He told the Birmingham Mail: “I did it up to a good standard so I could live in it when I was looking for a home. I put in a kitchen with a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, built-in appliances, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a living room and a lift as there was already one there to stack pallets.”
Azam sparked a row from locals when he moved the lorry into his mum’s front garden in Sheldon.
He’s now looking to sell it off to avoid legal action from Birmingham City Council.
Azam said: “It wasn’t meant to be here that long, a sale fell through.
“A friend was meant to take it to Scotland but he changed his mind.
“I want to sell it for £2,000 because otherwise the council will tow it away and put the charge, with costs, onto my mother’s property.
“I’m looking for someone who can make good use of it.”
