Here is a list of all the electric car charging points across East Lancashire.

As the government announced this week the UK announced it will move its legal goal to reach zero emissions by 2050 by banning new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2035, the Lancashire Telegraph has looked at how many charging points there are in the region so far.

Using website ZapMap it has been revealed there are 57 charging points in the east of the county.

The interactive site breaks each charging point down into how fast it charges, network and types of payment.

It also provides live information as to whether the charge point is being used.

Cllr Phil Riley, executive member for growth and development at Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: “We are very proud to be leading the charge, so to speak, in introducing so many electric car chargers.

"It is positive for the environment in improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions which is a big priority for us, and the electric and hybrid car market is growing all the time.

"This is an important part of pour strategy on climate change which is being published next week.

"Two more electric car chargers are being installed in the new Reel Cinema complex which will be available in the coming months, and we are keeping an eye and demand and will definitely look into adding more chargers in our car parks if the need is there, so people driving electric cars can charge up easily.

"It is also an incentive for people to switch to these types of cars.

"We feel this is a really positive step in aiming for a greener and environmentally friendly future for the borough."
