China plans to ban diesel and petrol vehicles

China, the world's biggest car market, plans to ban the production and sale of diesel and petrol cars and vans.
     
The country's vice minister of industry said it had started "relevant research" but that it had not yet decided when the ban would come into force.
     
China made 28 million cars last year, almost a third of the global total.
     
Both the UK and France have already announced plans to ban new diesel and petrol vehicles by 2040, as part of efforts to reduce pollution and carbon emissions.
