UK to bring forward ban on petrol and diesel cars, Leaders Council reports

Prime minister Boris Johnson will outline UK government plans to bring forward its ban on petrol and diesel cars from 2040 to 2035, the Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland reports.

The policy change was made following concerns from climate change experts that the mandatory transition to electric and hydrogen vehicles by 2040 would come too late to keep the UK on track to hit its net-zero carbon emissions goal by 2050.

Boris Johnson will discuss the new policy at an event in London later, which preludes the UN COP26 climate summit which will be hosted in Glasgow in November.
