Car manufacturers are being encouraged to reintroduce LPG-powered models to their UK ranges as concerns about vehicle emissions and air quality problems have grown following the scandal of Volkswagen’s fixing of emission tests.

Rob Shuttleworth, chief executive of LPG trade association UKLPG, said: "We urge the automotive industry to give consumers the chance to benefit from this proven solution."
