The MT team is back in the podcast studio after a summer break, and if you're ready for a hit of the latest news being dissected and discussed, the latest Motor Transport Podcast will not disappoint.

In this episode, Christopher, Chris and Emma chat about London Mayor Sadiq Khan's newly proposed Direct Vision Standard, which could see up to 35,000 HGVs banned from the city's roads by 2020, and the implications this could have on businesses.

The team also discusses the acquisition of UK Mail by Deutsche Post DHL, and how the move could be indicative of a wider market trend.
