LONDON's traffic fumes are the lowest in the UK, according to the latest official figures.
The CO2 emissions in 26 of the 33 London boroughs were lower than the 2005 figures.
Overall transport emissions were 177,000 tonnes less than in 2005, a reduction of around two per cent, according to latest National Statistics on local authority carbon dioxide emissions, despite a growing population.
