The Supreme Court has ruled the Government is breaking the law by not cutting air pollution levels in several cities including London. Levels of the toxic gas nitrogen dioxide currently breach EU limits in the capital and campaigners say the Government should be doing more.
But the Mayor's office says emissions are down:
“Airquality in the capital is taken extremely seriously and strenuous efforts arebeing made to improve it. Since the Mayor took office emissions ofdangerous particulates (PM10) have fallen by 15% and of oxides of nitrogen by20% thanks to an ambitious package of measures including building Europe'slargest fleet of low emission hybrid buses, retiring the oldest taxis andintroducing tighter emission standards for lorries and vans.”
