8 London boroughs will recieve part of a new £11m fund put in place by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to tackle air pollution. The fund will be used to support the likes of car-free days, green taxi ranks and penalties for the most polluting vehicles.

The high profile push to improve the capitals air quality comes of the back of former mayor of London Boris Johnson's Low-Emissions Neighbourhoods initiative which offered two boroughs £2m of funding to trial innovative approaches to improving air pollution.

The fund, that will be shared between the 8 boroughs, will be used to support a wide range of "pollution-busting measures" inlcuding plans to introduce car-free days, green taxi ranks for zero-emission cabs, and parking spaces reserved for the cleanest vehilces.

Proposals that will now enjoy funding include plans for an electric vehicle delievry service in the Marleybone Low Emission neighbourhood in partnership with logistics giant UPS that will consolidate freight delivery to cut down the number of vehicles on the road.
