Air pollution needs to be tackled on roads in the UK’s most polluted roads, the Environment Secretary has said.
Michael Gove's plans reportedly list more than 80 A-roads and motorways, which need anti-pollution measures.
According to The Sun, Mr Gove will allow councils to "consider restrictions on polluting vehicles" and potentially charging for driving on certain roads, but only as a last resort.
Several roads in the Midlands could be subject to restrictions, including:
- A38 in Birmingham
- A452 in Birmingham
- A4400 in Birmingham
However, the majority of roads on the list as thought to be in London.
It comes as the government is expected to announce a ban on new diesel and petrol vehicles in the UK from 2040.
