Drivers outside of London produce most pollution

It has been revealed more than three quarters of car pollution in the South East is produced by drivers living outside of London.

An Oxford University study found that in 2012 the population of 12 million living in the South East but outside the capital produced 77% of the region's car emissions, compared with just 23% by the eight million people within London.

Researchers found that the average daily car mileage per person was 7.7 miles by Londoners, less than half the 15.6 miles driven by those neighbouring the capital.
