A scheme aiming to reduce air pollution has rolled into Leeds.

Primary schools in Leeds are to be given 400 scooters in a bid to encourage children to scoot to school instead of being driven.

The scooters are to be given to 30 schools mostly within a Clean Air Charging Zone that is to be introduced in 2020.

The council said if successful more schools could be provided with human-powered vehicles.
