AN ESTIMATED 1.2 million vehicles in the UK alone are affected by the emissions scandal.
Diesel cars manufactured by VW group between 2009 and 2015 had software that helped them cheat on emissions test.
Most Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda and Audi vehicles with four-cylinder diesel engines have this software built into the vehicle.
A recall is expected to start in the new year, with the aim of having all affected cars fixed by the end of 2016.
