A taxi firm in Workington believe they are the first in the county to use an electric car.

Sue's Taxis bought the eco-friendly car two weeks ago but it will become fully licensed later today, Wednesday 9 July.

Sue McKenzie, who owns the firm, trialled the car for three days and said both she, and passengers, were impressed.

She says one of the main selling points of the car is that it's quieter than a normal car.
