Environment secretary Michael Gove has launched a new "world leading plan" to tackle air pollution.
The strategy, which also looks to tackle home, farming and industrial pollutants, commits Britain to halving the number of people who live in areas breaching World Health Organization guidelines on pollution as poor air quality in British cities comes under scrutiny.
Ministers predict that the measures will cut the cost of air pollution to society by £1.7 billion every year by 2020, rising to £5.3 billion every year by 2030 - owing to savings from public health benefits.
The Clean Air Strategy also includes changes to existing smoke control laws and new powers for local authorities to act in high pollution areas, and plans to reduce ammonia emissions from farming.
A recent surge in popularity means domestic burning on stoves and open fires is now the single biggest source of particulate matter emissions.

But the Clean Air Strategy sets out a program of work across government, industry and society to reduce emissions coming from a wide range of sources.

"Action to protect people's health must be a requirement, not a 'nice to have"'.
"No one should have to breathe toxic air, especially not people with a lung condition or children whose lungs are still growing".
