Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday night announced a ban on the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 as part of a £12 billion green agenda, including £1.3 billion to rollout charge-points for electric vehicles in homes, streets and on motorways across England.

Johnson said £582 million has been allocated as grants for those buying zero or ultra-low emission vehicles to make them cheaper to buy and incentivise more people to make the transition.
