Britain’s two greenest cities are pulling ahead of the pack, finds the annual league table of sustainability published today, which shows Newcastle upon Tyne topping the list for the second year running.

None of the country’s 20 biggest cities have managed a double before, and the north-east city is complimented for "smart long-term investment in the quality of life" by judges from the organising group, Forum for the Future.

Projects ranging from an electric car hub, with nearly 600 charging points, to an urban bees programme, have led Newcastle to feature strongly in all of 13 indicators, bar strength of the local economy.
