Tank 'greener' than a Fiat due to lobbying by car industry

Lobbying by the German automobile industry meant the EU classified a tank as more environmentally friendly than a Fiat 500, according to Transparency International.

The anti-corruption organisation is calling for new regulations to prevent governments from being unduly influenced by businesses and other special interest groups.

Daniel Freund from the group said it is necessary as "politicians need to be accountable".
