Ban diesel cars in London, thinktank urges
IPPR analysis says capital will eventually need to phase out diesel cars and buses in order to meet EU air pollution targets
Diesel vehicles must be banned from London if the UK is to meet its air pollution targets, a thinktank warned on Monday.
Cars, vans and buses using diesel fuel are the leading cause of air pollution in the capital, and although steps are being taken to discourage their use, through the congestion charge and clean air zones, this will not be enough to clear the air, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) found in a new report.
