The number of folding bikes available for hire in Newham has been boosted to meet demand. 

A network of seven Brompton Bike Hire docks located near train stations - including Royal Albert DLR, Forest Gate and Manor Park - has been created.

Newham Council has opened docks next to The Crystal building close to the Royal Victoria Dock DLR station and the Emirates Air Line cable car as well as outside Maryland station.

A 16-bike hire dock has also opened in Stratford along with another at Newham University Hospital in Plaistow.

Jamie Blake, corporate director, environment and sustainable transport at Newham Council, said: "The arrival of the Brompton Bike Hire scheme has been a great success.
