Air pollution in London

                        Campaigners took legal action after the UK breached EU limits on NO2 emissions
                   

               

The UK's highest court has ruled that the government must take immediate action to reduce air pollution under European law.

The ruling represents a significant victory for campaigners, who started legal action after the UK breached EU limits for nitrogen dioxide in the air.

NO2 is produced by emissions from diesel-powered cars and trucks.

The Environment Department insists the UK is compliant with EU legislation for nearly all air pollutants.

The case had been brought by the activist group ClientEarth, which comprises environmental lawyers.
