James Beard, Climate and Transport Specialist at WWF said:

“The ruling that a 2040 petrol/diesel sales ban and passing the buck to local authorities do not add up to a satisfactory air quality plan, means we’re back to the drawing board. Defra should bring forward its petrol/diesel sales ban to 2030. This will help local authorities clear the air in their streets in the near term, while cutting carbon emissions and helping protect people and nature from the impacts of climate change.”
