Brighton and Oxford are among a number of locations to benefit from new funding for electric bicycles. The two cities will share in £700,000 of government funding. The project will see hire schemes set up and hundreds of e-bikes delivered.

Cycling campaigners have described the Government investment as "long overdue" and say the UK's use of battery-assisted bikes is still behind some European countries.
Transport minister Andrew Jones said: "Electric bikes are a great way to encourage new people to get into cycling and this announcement will provide an opportunity for thousands more to enjoy the advantages they offer."
