Councils across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have revealed how much they spend on cars for their mayors.

In Peterborough, more than £35,000 has been spent on three cars, including a Jaguar and two Nissans since 2015, almost £27,000 of that for leasing vehicles.
 
The figures comes from the Tax Payers Alliance. 
 
Peterborough's Mayor also has a personalised number plate (EG1) that's been owned by the City Council for more than 50 years.
 
At Cambridge City Council, the spend's not been anywhere near as steep, with nearly £4,000 for just ONE Volvo S80.
 
Other councils like Huntingdonshire District, don't have mayoral cars.
