SOME SAY he was the man who dared Lady Godiva to ride naked on that horse - and his love of ska and reggae music led to the creation of 2-Tone...

All we know is - he's called The Stig. And he visited Coventry this weekend as the city took one step closer to Christmas.

Locals got the chance to have their photo with the mysterious star of BBC's Top Gear at the Transport Museum.

The Millennium Place venue hosted an afternoon of events on Sunday including live music and a live showing of popular city film Nativity.

Owners of camper vehicles and scooters also decorated their vehicles for the festive season with judges - including The Stig - voting for their favourites.
