DAD-of-two James Harrison likes to build things, and he pushed his hobby to new limits by building a submarine for his two-year-old twins Monty and Hector - a Yellow Submarine.

Made out of an LPG tank and materials sourced from all over the country, the submarine joins a speed boat in the Harrison household.

James said: “I just love to build and collect wacky things. They’re just fun to mess around with.”

The 41-year-old added: “The kids absolutely love playing around with it, they think it’s great.”

The submarine comes complete with portholes and a propeller, which will come in handy for James’ next development.

He said: “I am going to attempt to seal up the submarine and make it watertight so that it can actually go underwater. You never know – if it carries on raining we might just need to use it.”
