Our colleagues from Friends of the Earth (FoE) report as below:-

"We're only 6 days into 2017 and parts of the UK have just broken their air pollution limits for the entire year. More places are set to follow in the coming days.  So let's make this the year that government finally takes air pollution seriously – and commits to get dirty diesel vehicles off our streets.

"Public pressure has already seen cities across the world ditch diesel. And just last month we secured a UK-wide ban on the advertisement of the removal of car pollution filters. But to fight the scourge of early deaths we need our government to commit to rid our roads of diesel vehicles by 2025.

"The more of us that join the call to end diesel, the harder it will be for decision makers to ignore us. The time for action is now – let's make 2017 a turning point in the fight for clean air."
