The BBC's Brian Milligan is attempting to drive an electric Mini from London to Scotland, using only public charge points.

On day two of his electric car challenge, he has reached Leicester. He left London on Monday, and is aiming to reach Edinburgh by Friday.

His first stop was at Milton Keynes. Here he demonstrates how to plug in, sit down, and wait for the car to charge.
