San Francisco - The US Environmental Protection Agency said on Thursday that a recall of affected Volkswagen diesel cars  in the ongoing emissions scandal would "likely" take place.

"EPA will require VW to remedy the noncompliance. It is likely that there will be a recall of affected vehicles," an EPA spokesperson said, adding that no specific timeline had been ordered yet.

The automaker has said it would refit up to 11 million diesel vehicles worldwide.

UK sales suspended

Volkswagen has suspended  the sale of around 4000 vehicles in Britain due to software at the centre of its emissions scandal.
