"New Diesel And Petrol Vehicles To Be Banned From 2040 in UK"

"New diesel and petrol cars and vans will be banned in the UK from 2040 in a bid to tackle air pollution, the government has announced.

Ministers have also unveiled a £255m fund to help councils tackle emissions, including the potential for charging zones for the dirtiest vehicles.

But the £3bn clean air strategy does not include a scrappage scheme, calling previous ones "poor value" for money."
