Latest News  >  Final Warning for Air Pollution

The European Commission has sent the UK a final written warning over failures to meet European limits for dangerous airborne particles in London.

Particle pollution is understood to be responsible for over 35,000 annual premature deaths across the UK, and over 4,300 in London alone.

The final warning from the Commission follows the start of legal proceedings against the UK in January 2009 for failing to meet air quality standards that came into effect at the end of 2004. During 2009 the UK applied for a time extension, allowed under EU law, for meeting the standards, however the application for the London 'zone' was rejected due to the lack of a concrete plan for cleaning the air.
