Video: Swindon man amasses one of Britain’s biggest collection of 300 vacuum cleaners

Have your say

A 38-year-old man has no excuses for not cleaning his flat - after amassing a collection of 300 vacuum cleaners.

Addict Steve Cook has been collecting vintage vacuums since he was three-years-old. Collector Steve estimates he has spent around £10,000 on the haul and he’s now run out of places to store the hoovers in his tiny one-bed flat. But the hoarder, who claims to have the third largest collection in the UK, insists the lack of space won’t prevent him from buying more. The collector was given his first device - a Hoover Constellation - by his late father Roy Cook who at the time was a caretaker at a local school and brought it home to repair.
