To Hull and Back By Electric Car
It is the second most polluting area in Europe, with its power stations and heavy industry making it responsible for 13 per cent of carbon emissions in Britain. But Yorkshire is attempting to redress the balance by promoting a greener way of travel up hill and down dale.
A consortium is aiming to install a network of 800 electric car charging points across the county, primarily in Sheffield, Leeds, York and Hull but also on main trunk roads, motorways and at tourist attractions.
It is hoped it will encourage drivers to switch to electric cars, secure in the knowledge they are not going to find themselves stranded by a flat battery.
