Calls for tougher fines for idling engines

Drivers in Camden are to face fines if they are caught leaving their engine running while their vehicles are stationary, in a bid to tackle air pollution.

It's not the first borough to do this, others have had the power to penalise idling engines, and in some cases in 15 years only one notice has been issued.

Eleanor Cunningham has the story.
