A teenager recently shocked his classmates with a unique way of arriving to his school prom – turning up in a 17-tonne tank.
Video footage captures the moment Brennan Boys, 16, from Stacksteads arrived at the event in the 30-year-old Saurer Tank along with five of his school friends.
His headteacher said they’ve had some unusual ideas in the past but said Brennan certainly made a “dramatic entrance”.
Driven by an ex RAF pilot, the tank was loaned to Brennan by his grandfather Brian Boys who is an avid collector of military vehicles, the Rossendale Free Press reports.
Brennan, who attends Alder Grange School in Rawtenstall was met by stunned classmates when he arrived at the event which was being held at the Higher Trapp Country House Hotel in Simonstone, many of whom took to social media to share the moment.
The tank, originally from Austria, had previously been used in action but has been deactivated.
Brennan decided on the unique way to travel after speaking to his granddad about his tank collection.
Joanna Griffiths, head of school at Alder Grange said: “We’ve had some pretty unusual ways of arriving to the prom, including one pupil who turned up in a coffin, but Brennan certainly made a dramatic entrance arriving in a tank.
