Step forward for Rutland Electric Car Trail

There's progress on plans in Rutland to create the UK's first electric car trail.

A route around the county has been agreed upon, with three alternative routes set out for cyclists. 

The Falcon, Barnsdale Lodge and Greetham Valley hotels have got on board and a major rental company are agreeing to hire out low emission cars for visitors to tour around in. 

It's also been revealed that neighbouring counties want to get involved with extensions on the trail.
