It mainly applies to diesel and petrol vehicles registered before 2006 which do not meet the so-called "Euro 4" European directive to regulate vehicle emissions.

    Victory for Abenomics lifts world stocks, dollar

    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's election victory lifted world stocks and the dollar on Monday, relegating concerns about Spain's escalating political crisis to little more than a blip on the market radar. Abe's emphatic win, which heralds a continuation of Japan's hyper-easy monetary policy, kept risk-on bets in play after fresh optimism about tax cuts in the United States had pushed Wall Street to a new record on Friday. President Donald Trump also indicated that the re-appointment of Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was still a possibility.

    Tottenham vs. Liverpool: Five Things We Learned As Harry Kane Starred Again For Pochettino's Title Contenders

    Harry Kane was the star once again for Tottenham as Spurs drew level on points with Manchester United in the Premier League with a resounding 4-1 win over Liverpool. Kane scored twice for Mauricio Pochettino’s team and set up Son Heung-min, with Dele Alli netting Spurs’ third of the afternoon. Liverpool had looked to climb back into the game when Mohamed Salah beat Hugo Lloris to make it 2-1, but Alli’s goal in the first-half added time deflated Jurgen Klopp’s team and they failed to recover.

    Georgia town to honor graves of more than 1,100 blacks

    Discriminated against in life, they were forgotten by their community in death, buried in unmarked graves in the back of the Alta Vista Cemetery in Gainesville, Georgia. For generations, segregation kept black and white Gainesville separate and unequal in life and death. "These are home folks," said Barbara Brooks, Gainesville's only African-American city council member, who helped lead the effort to establish the memorial.

According to a White House official, “he believes [they]… should be made available in the interests of full transparency”.

Almost 600,000 Rohingya refugees have fled Burma's northern Rakhine state into Bangladesh since 25 August after the military began a campaign in the region.

    'If all goes well we'll arrive on Wednesday': Poignant letter written day before Titanic sank sells at auction for £126,000

    The handwritten note, on embossed Titanic stationery, was written by first-class passenger Alexander Oskar Holverson on April 13, 1912 - the day before the ship hit an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic, killing more than 1,500 onboard. Holverson, a salesman, had intended to post it to his mother, who lived in New York - but he was sadly among those killed that day. Auction house Henry Aldridge & Son, which specializes in Titanic memorabilia, said on Saturday that the letter was "the most important Titanic letter we have ever auctioned" because of its content, historical context and rarity.
