Car nut Joseph Gabrielli is collecting and restoring classic police Ford Anglias after falling in love with them while watching Heartbeat.<br />
<br />
Joseph avidly viewed the ITV Sunday night drama, set in 1960s Yorkshire, as a child with his family.<br />
<br />
He was transfixed by the blue and white Ford Anglia police car which often appeared on screen.<br />
<br />
The 26 year old bought his first Ford Anglia in 2015, a former Leicester Police CID vehicle that had been languishing in a barn for 39 years.
