App locates lost shopping trolleys

A new smartphone app is tackling the problem of abandoned supermarket trolleys by allowing the public to report their exact location for collection.

The free Trolleywise app for Apple and Android devices lets users send photos of trolleys, triggering a GPS system that alerts a national collection service. One of a fleet of 47 vans can be sent to the location within 24 hours to recover the trolley and return it to the supermarket.
