It's all very well having an electric car but if there's nowhere to recharge, then it becomes about as much use as a chocolate fireguard.
The problem comes in funding a recharging network, sufficient enough to put potential users minds at rest that they will be able to recharge during a journey, and encourage purchase.
So I felt a little sorry for Brighton & Hove officials who have plans to complete a 16 charging point installation scheme by the end of this year.
Despite the fact that so far (reportedly), there are only 3 electric cars in the vicinity.
Still, at least they won't have to queue at the 'pumps'.
