Jasper Carrott gets tram named in his honour
Brummie comedy legend Jasper Carrott has today unveiled a tram named in his honour in a special ceremony.
It was the first time he had taken a Birmingham tram ride in 70 years and he joked that he particularly enjoyed the experience as he didn’t have to pay.
Joined by his wife Hazel, he arrived by tram at the new Metro stop outside Birmingham Town Hall. His 1975 hit single Funky Moped was playing out to fans and well-wishers gathered for the event.
