Nip down to the Fremlin Walk shopping centre in Maidstone for the chance to view Doc Brown’s DeLorean from Back To The Future.

The car - complete with its famous time-travel permitting flux capacitor - is on display as part of the centre’s Father’s Day promotions, along with the General Lee from the 1980s TV series Dukes of Hazzard. There is also a competition to win £300 worth of shopping vouchers.

The DeLorean belongs to Stephen Wickenden from Deal, who bought it from Universal Studios exactly five years ago.

It is not one of the seven originals used in the film, but was a replica created by Universal to mark the movie’s 25th anniversary.

Mr Wickenden would not disclose how much he paid for the car, but admitted it was insured for £200,000. He takes it to shows all across Europe, but also uses it to run his 10-year-old daughter Molly to school every morning.

James Coster was one of the lucky Dads permitted to sit in the vehicle this morning, though his son Frankie seemed less than impressed.
