Hundreds of protesters gathered in London on Saturday afternoon to protest against the Ultra Low Emission Zone (Ulez) expansion scheme. MailOnline has more.
The protesters gathered at Trafalgar Square, London, in high-visibility jackets with ‘Free our Streets’ placards and mock registration plates reading ‘No to Ulez’.
Demonstrators could also be seen with placards that read “Get Khan Out” and “Take Back Democracy”.
It comes after a High Court judgment permitted four London councils to proceed with a legal challenge against London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s plans to expand the Ulez to the whole of Greater London.
But Mr Khan has said he will continue with plans to extend the Ulez, which he has argued is needed to tackle toxic air that is responsible for thousands of premature deaths a year.
The Ulez, which is aimed at reducing air pollution by charging drivers of older vehicles, covers the area inside the North and South Circular roads.
But Mr Khan intends to expand it across all of Greater London on August 29th of this year.
