New electric charge points for cars in Luton

Six charging points for electric cars have been installed at railway stations in Luton and St Albans as part of a scheme to encourage more people to buy environmental-friendly vehicles.

There are only around 400 such electric cars in the East of England and research shows charging points often go unused.

The points have cost £28,000 with the rail company First Capital Connect picking up half the bill and the rest of the cash coming from the government.
