CARLISLE City Council has been tackling environmental offences within the city with one of it's eco-friendly vehicles.

The 100 per cent electric enforcement vehicle has been on patrol to try and curb offences such as dog fouling, fly tipping and littering.

Residents are reminded that if they wish to report anyone they see committing these crimes, or see any instances of fly-tipping in their area, they can report them by emailing:
