Man creates time machine
A man from Wiltshire has built himself a time machine - just like the one in the hit Michael J Fox movie.
Martin Fillery spent £10,000 turning a clapped-out DeLorean DMC-12 into a copy of the motor in the 1985 film.
It even has a "flux capacitor", time circuit gauges and atmospheric smoke vents like Marty McFly's machine reports The Sun.
Martin, 33, said: "I loved the film so much when I was younger. None of my mates believed me when I said I'd have a DeLorean one day - but I proved them wrong."
He bought the 2.8-litre stainless steel beast with trademark gullwing doors for £12,000 from the US six months ago.
Then he scoured auction site eBay for more than 100 parts to make the machine.
