An item up for sale on Facebook Marketplace in the North East has caused confusion and hilarity online after it was posted on the selling site recently. 

On the internet, we all know that there is a lot of weird and wonderful things, and it can be agreed that the item falls into both of those categories. 

On the same Facebook Marketplace platform that has seen Prime energy drinks sold for £180, one seller has caused humourous reactions after offering a 'coffin go-kart' online.

The description of the item states: "Great little go-kart, fun to ride about. It's battery powered, never been on a track, and just as good as new."

After posting the item for sale, the advert has been shared several times, with people lauding the go-kart as 'fantastic' and 'brilliant'.

One person said: "This is incredible - I would buy this item if I had more space to store it."
