Edinburgh's hourly car rental scheme has expanded to cope with a burgeoning membership that has almost doubled.

City Car Club membership soared 90 per cent during the past year to 3,500, forcing it to increase its fleet of vehicles from 85 to more than 100.

The club allows people to rent cars on an hourly basis, thus reducing the problems of parking – the scheme has specially designated spaces across the city – and the running costs associated with car ownership.
