Betty Bypass sits near the highway with a pram beside her.
According to a report by The Mirror, Nick Husband, a sandwich truck owner, bought ‘Betty’ the mannequin from the PDSA charity shop in Rubery High Street so he could pose her in different positions with a pram next to the food van. 10 years later, Betty still can be seen sitting near Nick’s sandwich truck in an eerie way.

Nick told The Mirror that the prank went so far that Council Officers came around to provide aid for the lonely lady and her ‘baby in a pram’. “Some think she’s real, many take their photos with her and others worry about her being homeless and want to help her,” Nick added.
