British cities may have to ban older cars to dramatically reduce the harmful effects of air pollution or face fines from the EU after the Supreme Court ruled the Government is not doing enough to improve air quality.

"The UKs highest appeal court ruled yesterday (Wed) that the government has breached European Union air quality laws by failing to reduce cancer-causing pollutants." ---- This just as bad as the Bay Area and Los Angeles in CA.

This is good news years ago we were told by the government that diesel fuel was the way to go it would be good for the country and the environment and it was a cleaner and less damaging fuel than petrol.We now know this to be wrong diesel is much worse than petrol and having worked for a number of years in an underground garage where i saw the walls and floor covered in diesel particles.I complained both to the council and to my union.I was assured by both that there was no danger to my health.Now that I am retired I suffer ill health by breathing in this irritant and have chest and throat problems. I now take what the scientists and government say with a large pinch of salt. Both always put profit before health.

Although late in coming - as it always seems to be when a profit is involved, this is a good idea -

Not a bad idea, considering the quality of air we breath...

Although I am glad to read this, the use of diesal fuel throughout Europe is an issue that needs attention.

Thank you! This is good news for British cities. It's a pity our courts don't do the same.

They shouldn't need a supreme court ruling to clean up their cities! Thanks!
