Bart Ricketts, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Wolverhampton South West, has welcomed the installation of electric charging points in the City.

Bart said "This will help us reach net-zero emissions and will combat air pollution. Our plan is to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045, to halve emissions by 2030 compared with today.

"It's clear that the Conservative party doesn't take climate change seriously. Only the Liberal Democrats have a radical plan to make a real impact in the fight against climate change and build a brighter future for our planet."

The Liberal Democrats have pledged to plant 60m trees every year if they get into government, increasing the UK's forest cover by 1m hectares by 2045.
