More than 770,000 Mercedes vehicles under emissions recall

More than 770,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles are under a recall order in Europe following the discovery of illegal emissions control devices on a small number of cars, writes Brian Byrne.

The models affected include versions of the Vito van, the C-Class and the GLC SUV.

It is understood that parent company Daimler does not face any fines over the issue, as there is no evidence of intent by the company to design software to cheat emissions rules.
