Dockless electric cycle hire firm Freebike - whose central London coverage area includes both Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital - is offering its service for free to key workers.

NHS staff and key workers offered free use of electric bikes

There were plenty of Freebike cycles outside St Thomas' Hospital in Lambeth Palace Road on Wednesday.

Key workers can email [email protected] for access to the scheme.

Freebike's coverage area south of the river stretches from Lambeth Bridge in the west to Rotherhithe in the east.

Freebike says that it is a small start-up company without access to "Silicon Valley billions" so it is running a crowdfunding campaign so that it can maintain and expand the free service during the crisis.
