London's pollution is estimated to kill perhaps 9,000 people/year.[1]

Militarization

After the 2016 Berlin Truck Attack, plans were announced to spend £5 million on a "ring of steel" around a section of the City of London, featuring bollards and checkpoints.[2]

In August 2016, Bernard Hogan-Howe announced an expansion of "counter terrorist" police - which the Daily Mail described as "awesomely armed (and masked)". Hogan-Howe said that "In some of our big iconic locations, we've already got armed patrols - if you look at Parliament, Downing Street - so it's not entirely new. I think people understand that where you are going to have people as enemies who've got guns, we've got to have guns."[3]
