Dear Sadiq Khan,

We are headteachers who represent schools from across London. Our schools are in areas where our children and young people are being forced to breathe some of the most toxic air in London, and the country as a whole.

We welcome the bold commitments you have made to clean up London’s air.

The car industry is under the spotlight this week. Fiat are facing accusations of cheating on diesel emissions by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Like Volkswagen it is about using technology that hides the true impact and damage their cars are doing. The accusations came just a day after Volkswagen admitted to cheating emissions tests in over 500,000 vehicles and received fines of $4.3bn.

Responding to reports that Fiat Chrysler has been accused of cheating on diesel emissions by the US Environmental Protection Agency, Areeba Hamid, clean air campaigner at Greenpeace UK, said:

‘How many nails in the coffin does diesel need? Just a day after Volkswagen admitted to cheating emissions tests in over 500,000 vehicles and received fines of $4.3bn, these are serious charges against Fiat which show that this industry is in crisis.
