And the Belfast Giants fan managed to get the whole length of Minnowburn Drive with her blades, and wearing a onesie, without hitting tarmac, reports Belfast Live .

She said: "I was in the street with my shoes on and keep falling so decided to see of our ice skates would work. My dad told me I'd break my neck but I tried it anyway and it worked great."
