UK to ban sales of petrol, diesel-fuelled cars from 2040: Media

LONDON (REUTERS) - Britain's government will announce on Wednesday (July 26) that it will ban the sale of petrol- and diesel-fuelled cars from 2040 when all vehicles must be fully electric as part of a plan to clean up air pollution, newspapers reported on Tuesday. The reported move follows a similar announcement earlier this month by the French government.
