A TEENAGER could spend her whole summer camping after a winning a life-sized VW Camper Van tent.

Frances Ireland has picked up the impressive tent after entering a competition at Coventry Transport Museum.

It had been part of the venue's surfing exhibition Wheels and Waves, which attracted nearly 150,000 visitors during its five-month run.

Thousands of those had entered the competition but it was 17-year-old Frances whose name was pulled out of the hat.

The Nuneaton teen said: "I fell in love with this awesome tent as soon as I saw it on display at the Museum, and entered the competition never thinking that I would stand a chance of winning.

"It’s amazing to have been drawn out of the hat from thousands of entries, and I can’t wait to give the tent a test-drive this summer."

Replacing the exhibition is Royalty on the Road, which showcases a range of very special vehicles used by royalty.

It will see a competition held to win day passes to Buckingham Palace or a Peugeot 107 pedal car for the children.
