The car community turned out in numbers to celebrate a Norwich teenage petrol-head's brand-new camera after they all chipped in to help the 13-year-old live his dream.

A GoFundMe was set up back in September by a member of the community after seeing car enthusiast Isaac taking pictures with just his phone.

Jake Masters, at The Bodycentre, said: "We had around 15 high-end cars show up who had all recognised Isaac's previous work.

"It was great to see how much support Isaac got from the car community and actually engaged with him while he was there.

"The fact the GoFundMe was set up and also the amount of money which was raised, was just out of the kindness of people's hearts, is truly incredible."

Isaac's dad, Gary Tibbitts, could not believe the turn-out his son had garnered when they arrived at The Bodycentre workshop on December 4.

He said: "It was absolutely amazing to see the amount of people turn up.

"For myself as well, it was great to walk around and see some very expensive cars that people have put a lot of time and effort into.

Isaac said: "It was great to see all the people arrive in their cars and then they gave me this new camera for free.
