Air quality: Queen Elizabeth II in danger

Air pollution near Buckingham Palace is the worst in the UK and almost four times the EU legal limit, figures show. The average annual level of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in Grosvenor Place, near the Queen’s central London residence, is 152 micrograms per cubic metre of air. Oxford Street near Marble Arch had the second highest level, 150 micrograms, a Freedom of Information request showed. The EU limit is 40 micrograms of NO2 per cubic metre of air.
