World's Smallest Fire Engine


With a makeover that would have Del Boy tipping his hat, a car enthusiast has built the world’s smallest working fire engine – from a Reliant Robin. Complete with six water hoses, an escape ladder and sirens, the tiny tender is the work of self-taught engineer John Ward. He spent four months converting the three-wheeler, which has a top speed of 60mph, to accommodate a 50-litre water tank. The vehicle features a brass bell, red and blue lights and fire extinguishers for tackling, well, small blazes and other minor hot spots.
