The city council scheme is part of a drive to cut emissions and will start this autumn.

Initially, 394 charge points will be installed, with a focus on the city centre, to support the electrification of Birmingham's taxi vehicles.

The local authority says they'll also be available to firms and residents and their aim is to get the charge points across the city in the next 12 years.
