Air pollution cameras could be clean air key

The UK’s first air pollution cameras are being trialled in Birmingham and London.

Reacting to the news, ClientEarth lawyer Alan Andrews said: “Car makers have failed to meet emissions limits that are designed to bring down pollution and protect our health.

“We need Clean Air Zones across the country to get rid of the toxic air in our towns and cities. If these cameras work, they will be a useful tool in holding car makers to account on emissions standards and help ensure that those Clean Air Zones deliver protection for human health.”
