Scrappage scheme boosts car sales


The UK scrappage scheme continued to help new car sales in August with sales up 6% from a year ago, the second consecutive month of growth.

The number of new cars sold in the UK in August was 67,006, although total sales since the start of 2009 are still 21.5% lower than the same period last year.
