LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has suggested owners of diesel cars could get some help from the government if cities adopt new charges to tackle pollution, the BBC reported on Wednesday.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan plans to charge the most polluting cars and vans a daily fee of 12.50 pounds ($16) to enter the city centre from 2019, making the British capital the latest city to crack down on gas-guzzling cars.
