Responding to the news that the government will end the sale of diesel and petrol cars by 2040, Scottish Liberal Democrat environment spokesperson Mariam Mahmood said:

"Air pollution contributes to thousands of deaths in Scotland every year and costs the NHS hundreds of millions. Today's announcement does not go nearly far enough.

"At the general election Liberal Democrats called for all new diesel sales to end by 2025 and a scrappage scheme to help drivers convert to greener vehicles.

"We are serious about fighting air pollution, this government is not."
