Oxford Street air pollution drops by a third

One of London's most notoriously polluted streets has seen its toxic air levels drop by a third in just twelve months.

Readings taken by King's College London and London Air monitors show a fall in nitrogen dioxide levels.

It's thought the switch from diesel to electric buses and reducing deliveries to the street's hundreds of shops could have had a substantial impact.
