A RADIO Caroline enthusiast showed off his vintage vehicle at a major pirate radio celebration.

An event was held last week in Walton to commemorate 50 years since the birth of pirate radio off the Essex coast.

Superfan Tim Bryan boosted the celebration by showing off his 1967 Ford Anglia to the hundreds-strong crowd who packed onto the seafront for the occasion.

Pal Ian Heard said: “Tim is a lifelong Radio Caroline fan and he was excited about the event.

“Having his car down there really brought back memories and made it even more special for people.

“It was a big hit and a great day.”
