It will also be used to deliver a range of other services to those who find it difficult to get into the predominantly rural district's four main town centres - Wisbech, March, Chatteris and Whittlesey.

Friday's event was the culmination of the ground-breaking vehicle's first week-long tour of 11 Fenland villages.

It is equipped with mobile internet access, a private area for confidential discussions with service advisors and a selection of crime prevention equipment that is available free.
