A West Country-run car share scheme is one of the most successful in the country.

Car Share Devon now has more than 10,000 members.

The service, run by Devon, Plymouth and Torbay Councils, allows commuters in the county to find others to share their journey, either taking turns with the driving, or giving someone a lift in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs.
