Likely to be the UK’s oldest paperboy, Bailey has been delivering papers in Headcorn, Kent, for the best part of 50 years, through all weather and during the coronavirus pandemic, even on his recent 80th birthday, which was also the day he received his Covid-19 vaccination.
Transport partnership Hitrans is seeking a supplier of 12 e-cargo bikes in a £25,000 pilot project that would result in four vehicles apiece being used in Inverness, Oban and Orkney.
