There are now fewer low-emission vehicles registered to drivers in Waverley than there were a year ago, despite a surge in their use across the country.

The RAC said the high up-front cost of electric vehicles - the most popular low-emission vehicles - was still putting many people off buying them, despite their lower running costs.

New figures from the DVLA show there 11,216 low-emission vehicles were registered in Waverley as of March 2023 – down from 90.19 the year before, but up from 87.59 in 2018.
