'Boris Bikes' are coming to Northamptonshire and the County Council says it's been inundated with suggestions for a name for its own bicycle hire scheme. In the three days since the contest was launched to find a name almost 200 entries have been submitted.

Suggestions so far include Bike n Ride and Cobblers Carriages. The £150,000 scheme will provide 50 bikes around the town.
