Archant

It has been turning heads across town - but just what is this mysterious vehicle driving around the streets of Ipswich?

Several passers by have reported seeing the yellow vehicle around the Suffolk town in recent weeks, with it last spotted today (Friday, January 18) by one of our journalists in Commercial Road, heading towards West End Road.

The banana-shaped car or bike - to the casual eye, it is not entirely clear which - appears to have three wheels, with two at the front and one at the back, and is only a few feet high.

There barely even looks to be room for a driver, although it would appear a hatch opens on the roof for someone to climb into.

It certainly does not lack speed though, as the vehicle had no problem keeping up with with full-powered petrol engined cars on at the Commercial Road crossroads with Princes Street.
