‘Toxicity charge’ introduced in London

Science Editor

A new charge on some of the most polluting vehicles has come into effect in central London. It’s called the T-Charge, or “toxicity charge”, and affects most diesel and petrol cars registered before 2006.

Drivers of these cars will now face an additional £10 charge when entering the central London congestion zone, but some motoring groups have said it unfairly targets the poorest motorists.
