UK wants to delay air pollution report until Sept. 15 -May's spokesman

LONDON, April 24 (Reuters) - The British government is seeking to delay publishing a report on tackling air pollution until Sept. 15, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.

The government had until 4 p.m. (1500 GMT) on Monday to come up with a plan to improve air quality and meet nitrogen dioxide limits set by the European Union after London's High Court ruled a calculation of future vehicle emissions was too optimistic.
