London Mayor Sadiq Khan has asked officials to look into introducing more days when cars are not allowed on certain roads or in specific areas as the city considers new ways to cut pollution.
Khan has already introduced an additional charge on the most gas-guzzling vehicles entering central London and has brought forward the introduction of an ultra-low emission zone.
