EU failed to heed emissions warnings in 2013
The EU’s top environmental official alerted his colleagues that motor manufacturers were gaming European emissions tests more than two years before US authorities uncovered widespread cheating by Volkswagen, according to internal European Commission documents obtained by the Financial Times.

Toyota showed off a special version of its new Mirai saloon this week to celebrate Back to the Future day.

In March, the Government made a commitment to initiate a radical review of the outdated business rates system. The tax this year brought in £23bn, outstripping council tax as the biggest generator of income for the Treasury.
However, the Chancellor stunned the industry at the start of this month with a surprise announcement that local councils would be handed full control of business rates.
