The Prince of Wales is to embark on a tour of the UK next month, taking in Bristol when he will be joined by the Duchess of Cornwall, to champion examples of sustainable living.

The five-day tour will visit projects such as a community-run city farm in Newcastle and a grow-your-own scheme in Yorkshire.

Travelling on the Royal Train, which runs on biofuel, Charles will visit Edinburgh, Carmarthen, Bristol, Newcastle, Todmorden, Manchester, Nottingham, Birmingham and London.

The tour is part of the Prince's Start initiative, a scheme to celebrate sustainable living.

It begins in Glasgow on September 6.
