Fashion icon Dame Vivienne Westwood helped raise awareness of air pollution at a festival in Camden Town.

The fashion designer and businesswoman attended the Urban Outdoor Festival held at Castlehaven Community Centre, in Castlehaven Road, Camden Town, on Saturday.

Cyclists were led on a ride along low-pollution cycle routes by Dame Vivienne, 73, as part of the festival, organised by climate groups to draw attention to air pollution.

She said: “It’s a philosophy of life. A practice. If you do this, something will change.

“What will change is that you will change, your life will change, and if you can change you, you can perhaps change the world.”
