THIS is the van that is helping the York Housing Association clean up its act.

The vehicle, leased from City of York Council, is being used by the organisation after it signed up to PlanetYork. The year-long project aims to make the city the United Kingdom's most energy efficient.

The car runs on environmentally-friendly Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). It will be used by property maintenance worker Tony Easton to visit the group's 500 properties.
