Top bosses from Sir Richard Branson to the chair of the football’s Premier League have backed the campaign to stay in the EU ahead ofThursday’s vote. Support for a Remain vote in Thursday’s referendum also came from car industry trade body The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT), which warned leaving would increase costs and threaten jobs. “Remaining will allow the UK to retain the influence on which the unique and successful UK automotive sector depends,” said chief executive Mike Hawes. Directors at Toyota UK, Vauxhall, Jaguar Land Rover and BMW, as well as from component makers GKN and Magal Engineering, also voiced their support.

Volvo and Geely aim to deepen ties

A documents cache seen by the Guardian show that the commission’s in-house science service told it in 2010 that tests had uncovered what researchers suspected to be a “defeat device” that could cheat emissions tests.

Under real world conditions, the 11m VW cars affected had higher NOx emissions.
