Bristol has banned diesel cars
It is part of a plan to go green
Bristol becomes the first city in the UK to ban the diesel car as part of a pledge to be carbon neutral by 2030, amid growing climate fears.
This comes after Bristol Council searches for £1 billion of investment to bring greater environmental standards.
These changes are set to come into place in 2021, when privately owned diesel cars will be banned in Central Bristol between 7am and 3pm, with fines for those who break the restriction.
Alternatively, Bristol Council will introduce a car scrappage scheme so that diesel car owners can swap their vehicle out for a cleaner one.
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, said "We have a moral, we have an ecological and we have a legal duty to clean up the air we breathe.
"These ambitious plans demonstrate our commitment to tackling air pollution so we meet legal limits within the shortest time, without disproportionately affecting citizens on lower incomes which would happen with a blanket approach to charging vehicles.
"Protecting the most vulnerable people from pollution is central to these plans and we have ensured that all impacts have been carefully considered."
