Electric vehicle charge points have been installed at 13 locations in Barking and Dagenham.

They have been installed as part of Source London, an initiative which allows people to charge their electric cars at various locations.

The charge points have been installed at sites including Dagenham Heathway, Longbridge Road and Upney Lane at no expense to Barking and Dagenham Council. The rest will be installed later in 2018.

Cllr Lynda Rice, cabinet member for environment and street scene, said: “It is fantastic we are able to be part of the green revolution taking place in London.

“Electric cars might seem like something of the future, but they are growing in popularity and becoming increasingly more affordable.

“Vehicle emissions are a silent killer, so being able to offer cleaner, viable options that encourage more electric vehicles to be on the roads of our capital can only be a good thing.”
