Vehicles which provide a service to the public such as coaches and taxis should not be allowed to use tyres which are more than 10 years old, according to Lancashire County Council.

Councillors unanimously supported a Notice of Motion proposed by County Coun John Fillis, cabinet member for highways and transport, at a meeting of the full council.

County Coun Fillis said: “It is clear that such risks can no longer be tolerated and the government should act now in order to prevent any further deaths being caused by old tyres.”
