BROMLEY police are showing off their green credentials by installing more than 120 solar panels on the station roof.

The panels, which are self cleaning and have a life expectancy of in excess of 30 years, will substantially reduce the station's carbon footprint over the coming years.

It is estimated they will save 21 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.

The assistant facilities manager for Bromley police, Nicholas Reynolds, said: "We have been working hard to ensure the station meets the highest environmental standards and are already taking great steps towards managing and minimising our environmental impact".
