Northumberland CC will save£10,000 a year relying on just one official car driven by one chauffeur in a six-month trial period, reports The Journal.

The experiment is likely to become permanent if the council decides it can manage with just one car, backed up by hiring taxis during periods of heavy demnd.

Until now the authority has operated one car with its own chauffeur to drive the chairman to civic functions and official business and a separate car and chauffeur for use by the other 65 members.
