A three-wheel flying car has won approval to drive on the roads. 

The PAL-V Liberty has been cleared for lift off by Europe's motor vehicle regulator, who gave its Dutch creators permission to register the machine as a car.

Eighty orders have already been placed and its makers hope it could be sold as an aircraft by 2022. 

The prototype first flew in 2012 and the final version, expected to be built in India, will cost from around €300,000. 

Future owners will have to get a basic pilot's licence to take control of the vehicle which will have a top ground speed of 100mph.
