You've heard of Carpool Karaoke - now Sunderland has its own version with 'Cabpool Karaoke'.

Station Taxis has launched the online feature inspired by the small screen phenomenon launched by James Corden's Late Late Show - itself produced by Fulwell 73, which is led by Sunderland fans.

The first of the acts to appear is Sunderland band Fire Lady Luck, who joined driver Rob Berry for a sing-a-long around the city, taking in Hendon, Leechmere and the A19 during the journey.

Within a day of it being uploaded onto Facebook, the clip has been viewed more than 18,000 times.

It features the band as they first sing along to their own cover of Billy Idol's Dancing On My Own.

They go on to belt out the words to Toy Dolls' version of Nellie the Elephant before the carload moves on Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, complete with added kazoo, played by Lewis.
