Police in the US state of Minnesota had an interesting call-out to the local county fair after a two-year-old managed to drive himself from his house to the fair, on his toy John Deere.

Officers from the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, near Minneapolis, received their first call of the night at the county fair on Friday 19 July which involved “a missing two-year-old who drove his tractor from home, to the fair”.
