The previous chief government of the carmaker Volkswagen has been charged in Germany over the diesel emissions scandal.

The general public prosecutor in Braunschweig charged Martin Winterkorn, and 4 different managers, with fraud.

Mr Winterkorn is already dealing with legal costs within the US, however is unlikely to face trial there, as Germany doesn’t extradite its residents.

He stepped down as VW’s boss in 2015.
