    The current plan is to ban their sale by 2032 despite not really knowing how they will be replaced or how the charging infrastructure and grid can cope with millions of EVs.

    However the ban doesn't rule out the use of hybrid cars (Toyota Prius), so doesn't mean that all cars will be EV by a long way.

    Having not seen it around for some time, the power operated doors set was on the 21.14 Edinburgh- Glasgow Central this evening (12.25 ex Plymouth)
