An emissions re-testing scheme is to be undertaken by the government, at an estimated cost of £650,000.

Under Secretary of State for Transport, Andrew Jones announced that, in order to keep the scheme independent, the government will not look for contributions from manufacturers. The money will come out of the Department for Transport's budget, rather than using fresh money from the treasury.


The sample of cars for retesting will be based on the current British market, so will include the newest and best-selling cars; the Nissan Qashqai, BMW 3 Series and Ford Fiesta are likely to be selected. The government is also working together with the German government to cover more cars, and plans to collaborate with more countries to extend this.


Diesel and petrol models will be tested, and a cost of between £8000 and £10,000 per car has been quoted by the Vehicle Certification Agency. The testing will measure emissions of NOX and CO2, as well as investigating whether ""˜defeat devices' have been used.

Ex-Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has paid out in excess of £100,000 and apologised to the producer he punched in a ""˜fracas' that led to him being sacked from the BBC.

Oisin Tymon, who was attacked by Clarkson in a row over a steak dinner, brought legal proceedings against the TV celebrity in November.


The producer, who suffered a split lip following the incident, pursued his case in the Central London Employment Tribunal, in Holborn.


However, it's believed the pair have now settled the case, with Clarkson paying £100,000

They've finished testing now and the government have posted the results here:
