ELN attended the official launch of London’s T-Charge yesterday – the new rule will see drivers of older petrol and diesel cars paying a £10 surcharge if they drive into the city centre.

We spoke to the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who said as part of a range of measures making up the scheduled Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ), the charge is expected to halve nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter emissions by 2020.
