FANCY A BURN-UP?
Watch out roadhogs, Colin's scooter has its own flame-thrower

Whatever you do don't cut this fella up, he can get very heated... Because Colin Furze has built a flamethrower into his scooter that can hurl fire 15ft. Of course, while it would be nice to scorch a roadhog's car, the 31-year-old insisted that it is only for show.
He said: "It's a hell of a lot of fun and when I fire the flames it makes me feel like James Bond. I'll only use it off-road though. I'd get in a lot of trouble otherwise. I've been told that if I fire the flames while riding on the road, it's equivalent to using a firearm.
"You could definitely set fire to someone's car if you wanted to. Problem is when the wind changes things can get a little bit hot for me as well!" Plumber Colin, of Stamford, Lincs, fires the flame-thrower with a button on the handlebar of the scooter, which is clearly a Flam-bretta.
