Harmful traffic pollution levels on Putney High Street has already breached annual limits nine days into January. Last year it took ten days!

Concentrations of nitrogen dioxide - a gas linked to asthma and other serious respiratory problems - are not supposed to go above 200 ug/m3 on more than 18 occasions a year under Government clean air targets.

Buses shown to be major cause of pollution

Murad Qureshi, Labour’s environment spokesman on the London Assembly, said:
“It is appalling that just five days into the New Year the hourly legal limit for nitrogen dioxide on one of our busiest roads has already been exceeded. Air pollution is a known killer causing over 4,000 premature deaths every year.
