LON­DON: The univer­sity city of Ox­ford has un­veiled plans to ban petrol and diesel cars from its cen­tre as part of the most rad­i­cal set of pro­pos­als so far in Bri­tain to curb pol­lu­tion.

Whilst Lon­don is rolling out an “ul­tra low emis­sion zone”, which will see the most gas-guz­zling ve­hi­cles pay daily charges to en­ter the city cen­tre from 2020, Ox­ford’s “Zero Emis­sion Zone” will ban emit­ting ve­hi­cles from en­ter­ing part of the city cen­tre from that date. P8
