A ban on bull bars fitted to the front of cars may be on the way, the Government indicated yesterday.

Transport Minister John Bowis told the Commons: "I want to see aggressive bull bars banned." Replying to Labour's Paul Flynn, whose backbench Bill to outlaw bull bars failed earlier this year, Mr Bowis said good progress was being made in drawing-up a European Commission directive.

"We are making good progress. Britain is leading the way on it and I hope that before too long we will achieve what you and I want."
