Dr Bradbrook, a molecular biologist, admitted in the Talk Radio interview that she had “done lots of good things but I also don’t get it all right” before revealing she drove a car.
When asked by host Cristo Foufas if it was electric the 49-year-old, who founded XR in 2018, said: “No, because I can’t afford it. But if somebody wants to give me £5,000 you can convert my car to electric, and I don’t have the money at the minute.”
The group has plans at London Bridge and Cavendish Square Gardens on Tuesday.
