A Berkshire council has added an electric car to its fleet.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead claims it is the first local authority in the UK to have a Nissan Leaf.

The 100% electric vehicle, which has no CO2 emissions and can be charged from a domestic socket, will be used as a pool car for staff and councillors.

The authority says it is now working with local businesses to provide charge points throughout the borough.
