Britain’s first zero-emissions street is set to open in 2020, banning all petrol and diesel cars 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The rule will be enforced on Beech Street which runs under the Barbican Estate in London and will see it become accessible only to pedestrians, cyclists and zero emission vehicles as part of a new City of London initiative.

Electric and hydrogen vehicles will be permitted to access the street while hybrid vehicles may only use it if they have the capability to drive for at least 20 miles in zero-emission mode.

Cars that breach the ban will be fined £130.
