South east's first all-electric bin lorry unveiled by Brighton councillors

The south east's first all-electric bin lorry has been unveiled by councillors in Brighton.

The refuse vehicle is one of four that will be launched this year to replace diesel vehicles.

It's part of plans by the council, which has been led by the Greens since last year, for the city to be carbon neutral by 2030.

It's one of 11 other electric vehicles now in the council fleet, including an e-cargo bike, electric cars and vans, and a truck used by the council to tackle fly tipping.

Cllr Phélim Mac Cafferty, the Green Leader of Brighton & Hove City council, said the lorry was "brilliant" and a "key way" the council will meet its carbon neutral target.
