New research has revealed that every Londoner in the capital lives in an area exceeding WHO guidelines for the most dangerous toxic particles known as PM2.5.
The research, released by Sadiq Khan and based on the latest updated London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory, shows that nearly 95 per cent of the capital’s population live in areas that exceed the guidelines by 50 per cent or more.
Khan, who signed the capital up to the Breathe Life coalition organised by WHO, UN Environment and Clean Climate and Clean Air Coalition, said that the report highlights the scale of the health challenge facing London.
Khan, said: “This research is another damning indictment of the toxic air that all Londoners are forced to breathe every day. It’s sickening to know that not a single area of London meets WHO health standards, but even worse than that, nearly 95 per cent of the capital is exceeding these guidelines by at least 50 per cent.”

This is worrying – websites that are not currently accessible are potentially breaching the Equality Act of 2010. One of the first places to look for help should be the Government Digital Service (GDS), which provides help, advice and guidance on legislation regarding accessibility.
It is surprisingly easy to start meeting the government’s accessibility requirements.
