EU referendum: Leave and Remain clash in BBC Great Debate referendum images

Leading names from both sides of the EU referendum have traded blows in a live TV debate at Wembley Arena on the eve of the final day of campaigning. The BBC’s Great Debate featured almost two hours of questions on immigration, the economy and sovereignty. Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson repeatedly clashed with Boris Johnson in front of an audience of thousands and accused his Leave side of “lying”. Mr Johnson said Remain “keep talking down our country”. Voters go to the polls from 07:00 BST on Thursday, to decide whether the UK should stay in or leave the European Union.


Diesels more polluting below 18C, research suggests

Pollution from many popular diesel cars is much worse when it is colder than 18C outside, new research suggests.

Testing company Emissions Analytics told the BBC it has measured a significant rise in poisonous gas emissions from a wide range of models as the temperature drops. It found the problem is worst among the Euro 5 category of cars, which became mandatory in 2011. The firm tested 213 models across 31 manufacturers. The finding means millions of vehicles could be driving around much of the time with their pollution controls partly turned off. But it seems many cars are deliberately designed that way and it is all perfectly legal.

Driverless cars promise fewer accidents, UK survey suggests

More than a quarter of UK adults believe that the main benefit of driverless cars will be a reduction in the number of road accidents, a survey has found. Research firm Opinion Matters quizzed 1282 adults about their attitudes to self-driving vehicles and other aspects of automation on behalf of the EPSRC’s UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network ahead of the first ever UK Robotics Week, which takes place between 25 June and 1 July 2016. Of those questioned, 26.1 per cent said the main advantage of autonomous vehicles like the Google Self-Driving Car will be reduction in the number of accidents. A fifth (20.7 per cent) expect they will help reduce levels of road rage. Among other key findings, 71.8 per cent said they feel autonomous driving would have a positive impact on everyday commuting.


VW faces ‘multi-billion’ investor class action over dieselgate scandal vw badge

Volkswagen is facing a multi-billion legal claim from investors who lost out when the company’s shares collapsed because of its “widespread deliberate deceit” over the emissions scandal. International law from Quinn Emanuel has filed the first in a wave of class actions claims against the German car maker on behalf of shareholders who it says lost “many hundreds of millions of euros” following VW’s admission in September that it cheated pollution control tests.

Empty lorries are making bad congestion even worse

Levels of congestion on Britain’s roads are rising fast because almost a third of lorries are being driven empty, according to research. Research by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers blamed “poor route selection” by hauliers, inefficient customs operations and an insistence on routing cargo through southern ports, even when it is bound for northern England and Scotland. The study said that an average of 150 million “preventable lorry miles” was logged in Britain each year.
