Canal Boat Holiday guests may think they are seeing a mirage as a floating ice cream parlour drifts past.

Businessman Steve Blakeman built the unique vessel from a tugboat, from Hebden Bridge, and an ice cream van, from Robin Hood's Bay.

It may seem hard to believe but Canal Boat Holiday guests feeling the heat on the Oxford Canal should head for the city and spend a while on the beach!

The beach took three days to build and will host a series of events over the summer including beach volleyball tournament and cinema screenings.
