Man Driving Giant Foot In Balham Sparks Confusion Across London

It's like something out of Monty Python.

While many across the nation's capital were gearing up for the marathon, one man was driving a giant foot through South London.

The oddity was seen and shared on Twitter by Wandsworth Police who appealed to the public for a bit of context.

The Mirror concluded the silver shell suit-wearing driver was being reprimanded by a traffic warden, however what appeared to be a council worker on patrol was actually someone dressed as a captain.

Tweeters speculated for a while on what the purpose of the strange vehicle might be until it was revealed to be a stunt promoting the Wandsworth Arts Fringe festival which takes place in May.
