Around 30 NHS key workers at Bedfordshire hospitals are now travelling to work on free bicycles, thanks to a scheme to renovate abandoned bikes. The scheme is being run by Thameslink, Luton Council and Sustrans, the charity promoting cycling and walking.

Bedfordshire Police is donating 25 bicycles to doctors and nurses at Bedford Hospital to help them with transport issues during the coronavirus pandemic.
