The sight of a 30-ton tank rolling up the tarmac at Soham Village College made for very nervous teachers on Friday night.

But it was all in good fun as students arrived at the Sand Street school for their end-of-school prom.

A 19th century fire engine and Second World War Land Rover caught the eye, but it was the vintage tank, complete with mounted gun, charging up towards the school that really set tongues wagging.

Dozens of Year 11 students put on their best bow ties, suits and dresses for the annual end of year bash.

Arriving in style has become as important as wearing the right outfit to teenagers in recent years and there was no shortage of spectacular vehicles on show as a crowd of well-wishes looked on.
