Camden Council has written to Mayor of London Boris Johnson urging him to do more to cut fatal levels of air pollution in north London.

Cllr Phil Jones, Camden’s cabinet member for sustainability, and Islington Council leader Cllr Richard Watts, wrote to Mr Johnson last week requesting an ­urgent meeting with local residents to discuss concerns.

Cllr Jones said: “Much of the pollution on our roads is caused by taxis, buses, and through traffic. We are lobbying the Mayor of London to do a lot more to stop thousands of Londoners dying too soon because of the air that we breathe.”
