An Electric car hire scheme has been launched in the Lake District. Visitors to the National Park can now hire electric cars when they visit. It's part of a project by GoLakes Travel to reduce visitor CO2 emissions by 11,000 tonnes a year by 2015.

The vehicles are available for hire at the Langdale Hotel at Elterwater.
