Wednesday 1 September saw the COP26 Carbon Battle Bus arrive in Essex, as it makes its way across the country in the build up to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, taking place in Glasgow in November.

The bus stopped off at the GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt in Braintree where an event was held by the Essex Climate Action Commission. The event showcased some of the action that is being taken both around the county and locally in Braintree in the fight against climate change.
