Jealousy, thy name is....
"A newspaper delivery man has unveiled his ultimate collection of boys' toys - a fleet of tanks he keeps in his back garden.
Shaun Mitchell, 44, became hooked on military vehicles aged 18 and eventually saved enough money to buy a WWII Austin Champ army Jeep. Since then, the self-taught mechanic has restored a fleet of road-legal military vehicles which he stores in his back garden and drives through his local village.
Shaun's favourite tank is his 8.1 tonne Sabre - one of the British Army's fastest ever tracked vehicles - fitted with a rotating turret armed with a cannon and a chain gun. Also squeezed into his back garden is a WWII truck, two Ferret Scout cars, an anti-aircraft gun, two armoured fighting vehicles and a tankette."
