Young boy caught giving his dad a tow with electric toy car

A young boy has been filmed giving his father a lift home by dragging him behind his electric toy car on a small wooden cart.

Much to the amusement of passers-by, the child appeared happy while giving his father a tow through the centre of Bognor Regis, West Sussex.

Witness Wayne Nuttall told the Daily Mail: "I was having a pint in my social club and popped out to have a cigarette.

"I looked across the road and saw this little chap driving his dad home."

Although it appears that the boy was in full control of the setup, it has come to light that the father was in fact driving the electric car.

Nuttall added: "I have since been told the dad and son had been in the local carnival procession the previous day.

"It seems the car was based on a mobility scooter which he had converted for £250."
