Solar-powered pink milk float winds its way to two-day festival
EAST YORKS: A solar- powered pink milk float has been winding its way to the region for a music festival.
The milk float has travelled up from Oxford for the Cornucopia festival being held today and tomorrow at Low Farm, near Driffield.
It carries a hand- operated woodblock letterpress which uses Victorian moveable type to print on paper.
The round trip is more than 500 miles and the milk-float's average speed is 15mph.

It needs to stop and recharge every 40 miles, a process that takes about five hours.
Printing enthusiast and driver Simon Rigby, 48, said: "The driving is great fun and there's no point in being in a hurry when you're in a milk float."
The vehicle will be at the Cornucopia festival, a two-day celebration of music and green living in the Wolds country- side. It is being headlined by former Dr Feelgood frontman Wilko Johnson and classic British R&B band Nine Below Zero.
Those with tickets can camp overnight.
