AN ELECTRIC car has been charging across the county as part of a campaign.

Uppingham First is hoping to get 20 electric car charging points installed in the county.

To promote the campaign Uppingham First secretary Ron Simpson has been loaned a Cenex car.

He has been visiting businesses since Wednesday to try and persuade them to have a car charging point and handing out details of how to apply for a grant to help with the costs.
