    Couple tour the UK in £3,500 converted hearse dubbed the ‘Grim Sleeper’

    A couple have been touring Scotland living in a converted hearse they've dubbed the "Grim Sleeper."

    Shannon Orr, 24, and Iain Cameron, 31, drove around the North Coast from Warrington, Cheshire, on an incredible 516-mile scenic route.

    Their eye-catching black car they made into their mobile home prompted so much interest they started an Instagram account for it as they documented their 'North Coast 500' journey.

    The couple bought the converted 1998 Volvo 960 hearse for £3,500 after seeing it advertised on Facebook, according to Wales Online.

    Their two dogs, Billy and Peanut, joined them on the trip.

    Ms Orr said: "We weren't looking for anything we were originally going to camp whilst on the NC500 but we saw it on Facebook and had to get it, because it was something neither of us had seen before.

    "We didn't do any of the conversion we bought it already converted so we can't claim anything for that sadly.

    "All we have added up to now is the Halloween figures on the dash, the ducks on the wing mirrors and the skeletons on the front and back.

    "We are planning to buy more to convert ourselves in the future as well as hiring this one out.

    The couple said the journey is far from over as they plot more adventures.

    "We plan to use it for all our future road trips, up to now we haven't planned where we are going next.

    "But I'm sure it'll attract a lot of attention where ever we go."

    Ms Orr said the hearse it was no different from a normal car to drive, except for sticking out in parking spaces.

    She added: "I think, with it being a hearse, it puts people off due to its previous passengers, but it just works so well as a camper if you can get past that part."
