The Beetle that became a mini

Chris Birks, 22, from Chinnor, Oxfordshire, going for a spin in Baby Bootle, a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle which at 8ft 4ins (2.5m) is believed to be the world's smallest Beetle. Mr Birks, whose family runs a motor engineering business, built the vehicle from the shell of an old VW, reducing its length by 4ft.
