The authority is inviting companies to design and develop a hydrogen-fuelled boat, in partnership with a local ferry operator.

It wants to "kick-start a hydrogen economy in Bristol" and attract new environmentally-friendly innovators.

A council spokeswoman said the trial was due to run for between three and six months, starting in the summer.
