Some of London's iconic black cabs are getting an overhaul in a move to neutralise air pollution and its devastating health impacts.
Ten of the famous Hackney carriages are to be fitted with cutting-edge filtration devices which will remove the vast majority of toxic chemicals and particles.
System - Cent - Matter - Cent - Nitrogen
The system can remove up to 97 per cent of polluting particulate matter and 95 per cent of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) from inside the vehicles after just ten minutes of being switched on.
It will make the air inside the taxi as clean and fresh as the natural hills of the Peak District.
Fleet - Capital - Cabs - Trial - Air

Air quality inside vehicles can be twice as bad as outside because it has less chance to escape.
Project - Barclays - Bank - Taxis - Air
The project is being launched by Barclays Bank who will call the taxis 'Barclays Air Cabs' during this summer's 12 week trial.
For two days - July 3 and 4 - anyone using one of these Air Cabs will get short local journeys free of charge.
Areas - London - Towns - Cities - UK
Five areas of London, and more than 40 towns and cities across the UK - have reported unsafe levels of nitrogen dioxide in previous tests, above the World Health Organisation's recommended safety limit of 40 micrograms per cubic metre.
The new filtration technology...
