Daventry Town Council has bought an electric bike for its town ranger to help him report incidents quicker.
The council purchased the bicycle from Daventry business Leisure Lakes in partnership with New Age Training and Recruitment,
Ranger Sean Croke said: “It’s really exciting having a bike - not only is it a great source of exercise, I will be able to attend reported incidents with much more speed, which can only be a benefit to the community.
“I’m hoping that I inspire others to cycle more, especially as there are so many beautiful routes in the town.”
The town council’s chief officer, Deborah Jewell, said the bike will give Sean more freedom to be in and around the town where the community most need him.
