When most people fall asleep in a cab it’s usually after a wild night on the town, but one London cabbie is promising not to kick you out afterwards.

Taxi driver David Weekes has converted his Hackney carriage into a hotel room for individuals in need of a place to stay during the Olympic Games.

But instead of being slumped up against the window, guests will be able to sleep on a “memory foam” mattress, complete with duvet and pillow, for £50 a night.

The back of the cab will also be kitted out with a solar-powered fridge, radio and a teddy bear.

While there’s no room to squeeze in a portable toilet, David Weekes said that guests can use the bathroom in his house or find public toilets.

The mobile bedroom is being offered through private accommodation site, Wimdu.com which, at the time of writing, is showing availability for several dates in August.
