Now the 2105 Formula E event has packed up and gone on holiday the environmental credentials have been washed down the plughole with the old battery fluid. The racing cars may have been electric but the carbon footprint of hundreds of lorry trips (probably thousands when all the food and drink concessions are added in), thousands of concrete blocks and who knows how many extra hours of helicopter flights are thrown into the ring.

Perhaps the local Green Party members could help Wandsworth Council calculate the true carbon cost of this event?

And talking of helicopters, why should local residents suffer the circling helicopters for much of the weekend for a commercial event with no transparent benefit?
