Bristol's Mayor George Ferguson has been in Brussels today, trying to persuade a panel of judges to make Bristol the European Green Capital for 2015.

George Ferguson is en route to Brussels hoping to convince judges that Bristol should be named the European Green Capital of 2015.

Bristol's Mayor, George Ferguson, and his seven-strong team will set off for Brussels today in their quest to make Bristol the European Green Capital of 2015.
They'll present their vision to a judging panel tomorrow morning (Friday). It's the second year in a row that Bristol has made the finals - narrowly missing out to Copenhagen last time.
