Elliot's lawyer, Nick Cartmell, told the Chronicle: 'He is adamant he was not standing. The allegation is he was standing while driving. He is a few inches off 7ft.

'He accepts he was high in the seat but he was not standing and was in control of the vehicle. It's a very small car. It would have been like the Big Friendly Giant in Noddy's car.'

Adam is on trial today.
