A haircut - in a layby


A hairdresser has set up business on a layby on the A6 near Luton.

"Ben the Barber" says there is a huge market for haircuts from passing drivers.

He bought what was a mobile dental surgery and turned it into a barber shop after he had problems affording the overheads of his conventional salon in town.

Mark Worthington went along to meet him.
