US consumer protection agency the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has filed a four-count legal complaint against carmaker Volkswagen.

The FTC claims the German firm falsely advertised that hundreds of thousands of diesel vehicles were environmentally friendly, when this was not the case.

The FTC says US customers suffered "billions of dollars in injury" as a result.

A VW spokesman said the firm had received the FTC complaint and "continues to co-operate" with all regulators.
