Bristol city council has voted to ban diesel cars from its city centre.
The scheme is due to start in 2021 and is part of the council’s action to tackle air pollution. It still needs government approval.
Bristol is one of several UK cities with illegal levels of air pollution.
The central zone from which privately owned diesel cars will be banned includes part of the M32, the old city, Redcliffe, Spike Island, the Harbourside and part of Hotwells.
All diesel vehicles except taxis and emergency services will incur a fine if they enter the area. Commercial vehicles will have to pay to use the area.
