Volkswagen halts 4,000 UK vehicle sales amid emissions scandal


Volkswagen has suspended the sale of 4,000 vehicles in the UK in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal, the company said.

The vehicles contain the EA 189 engines which are fitted with software that was used to con emissions testers in the US.

A company spokesman said: "As a voluntary measure we have suspended the sale of unsold diesel vehicle stocks that have the EA 189 engines."

He added that around 4,000 vehicles were affected across the Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda and Seat brands.
