London the worst city in Europe for health costs from air pollution | The Guardian |

NO2, PM and ground-level ozone (O3) - also largely derived from diesel - are responsible for nearly 500,000 premature deaths across Europe every year.

London suffers the highest social cost, at £10.32bn a year, well ahead of other European cities such as Bucharest (£5.75bn), Berlin (£4.75bn), Warsaw (£3.83bn), Rome (£3.76bn) and Paris (£3.18bn).
