Pollution levels in some parts of London are so high they breached acceptable limits for the whole of 2016 in just the first week.

Putney High Street and Knightsbridge are the worst offenders so far according to London Air, an organisation which measures levels of harmful fumes like nitrogen dioxide.

The article also mentions Oxford Circus.

As I've mentioned before, I often suffer from black snot after having visited London.

The problems persist:
The scale of London’s air pollution crisis was laid bare on Wednesday, with new figures showing that every person in the capital is breathing air that exceeds global guidelines for one of the most dangerous toxic particles.

The research, based on the latest updated London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory, shows that every area in the capital exceeds World Health Organisation (WHO) limits for a damaging type of particle known as PM2.5.
