It may have taken longer than the Ferrari her classmate opted for, but Sophie Fisher was more than happy with a tractor as her lift to the prom.

The 16-year-old was taken to the ball by her boyfriend, Grant Curtis, in a tractor from LJ and CA Cannings of Challow, near Wantage.

The King Alfred’s School prom was held at the school and had a casino theme.

Sophie, from Grove, said: “It was great.

“I’m not sad about leaving – I’m sure we’ll all still meet up.”

Among other unusual vehicles to transport the teenagers to the party was a 1963 London Routemaster RM 64-seat Double Decker bus, a stretch hummer, and a Ferrari.
