Man with army tank in his garden!

Shaun Mitchell, who has an army tank in his garden!

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Most people have flower beds or a barbecue in their back garden, but Shaun Mitchell has something rather unusual - an old army tank!

He buys and collects retired military vehicles as a hobby, including a Sabre tank that cost him £20,000 and an armoured personnel carrier.

The government sells off military equipment when they've come to the end of their working life.

Shaun is one of the army fans that saves up to snap them up. He even drives his tanks around the streets where he lives in Norfolk! Watch Shaun in action here.
