A Norfolk branch of McDonald's has become only the second in the country to offer electric vehicle (EV) charging.
Norwich franchisee Kevin Foley has installed the EV charging point at his McDonald's branch just off the A47 between Blofield and Brundall.
Mr Foley said: 'The number of electric vehicles on the road is rising fast so it's important that McDonald's helps support and encourage this change.
'It is important for local businesses like mine to promote greener driving in their local community and help their customers reduce their effect on the environment.
'As a business McDonald's is committed to reducing harmful emissions, whether that's by offering EV charging point or turning our cooking oil into bio-diesel to fuel delivery trucks.'
