Sadiq Khan said: “I’m honoured that the bold action we have taken in London to address the air pollution health crisis has been recognised. Our toxic air is an invisible killer responsible for one of the biggest global health emergencies of our generation. We know that road transport emissions are the largest source of pollution in many cities.

It is a vital step towards helping combat London’s illegal air and I’m pleased to say it’s already showing real results by dramatically reducing the number of polluting cars in the zone. Its expansion in 2021 will help London’s air meet legal levels for the first time in decades,” External link
