London to introduce £10 vehicle pollution charge, says Sadiq Khan
Mayor says owners of more polluting cars will have to pay extra levy from October to drive within congestion charge zone
Older, more polluting cars will have to pay a £10 charge to drive in central London from 23 October, the city’s mayor has said.
Confirming he would press ahead with the fee, known as the T-charge, Sadiq Khan said: “It’s staggering that we live in a city where the air is so toxic that many of our children are growing up with lung problems. If we don’t make drastic changes now we won’t be protecting the health of our families in the future.
