  16. Image copyright PA Image caption About 40,000 vehicles a day are expected to be affected by the charge The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) has come into force in central London. Drivers of older, more polluting vehicles are being charged to enter the congestion zone area at any time. Transport for London (TfL) hopes the move will reduce the number of polluting cars in the capital, and estimates about 40,000 vehicles will be affected every day. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said it was "important we make progress" in tackling the capital's toxic air. However, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) said many small firms were "very worried about the future of their businesses" as a result of the "additional cost burden". Media captionLondon's ULEZ: What you need to know Most vehicles which are not compliant will have to pay £12.50 for entering the area each day, in addition to the congestion charge. Vehicles can be checked using TfL's online checker but broadly speaking, those which are non-compliant are: Motorbikes that do not meet Euro 3 standards (pre-2007 vehicles) Petrol cars and vans that do not meet Euro 4 standards (vehicles pre-2006) Diesel cars and vans that do not meet Euro 6 standards (vehicles pre-2015) Buses, coaches and lorries will need to meet or exceed the Euro 6 standards or pay £100 a day Anybody who does not pay the charge will face a fine of £160, although a first offence may result in only a warning letter. The ULEZ is set to be expanded to cover the entire area between the North and South Circular roads in 2021. London's ULEZ: How does it compare? What does air pollution do to our bodies? ULEZ: The politics of pollution TfL estimates the initial scheme will lead to a reduction in toxic emissions from road transport by about 45% in two years. Mr Khan said London's air pollution was a "public health emergency" and it was the "poorest Londoners that suffer the worst quality air". Media captionAir pollution: what are the effects on humans? Analysis Tom Edwards, BBC London transport correspondent A very damp misty morning in London and most people probably won't notice anything has changed. But London has taken a big step in trying to clean up its air. Given the go-ahead in 2013 by the previous mayor Boris Johnson, Sadiq Khan brought the ULEZ forward a year and is planning to expand it in 2021. City hall says the ULEZ has already changed behaviour, with a fall in vehicles in central London and a rise in compliant vehicles ahead of launch. The plan is that London's air will be compliant with legal limits by 2025. Other cities are talking about diesel bans but London has taken the radical step that puts it in the vanguard of clean-air schemes. Other cities are watching closely. Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Sandra Green from the Clear Air Parents Network said the scheme was a "really big step forward". "Air pollution caused by traffic, caused by individual cars - is causing problems for health for the next generation... and it's about time we did something about it," she said. Figures from City Hall show more than 60% of all vehicles driving through the charging zone in March were already compliant with the new restrictions. Nearly 27,000 non-compliant vehicles have been taken off the roads in the last two months, and there has been an 11% drop in the total number of cars entering central London. However, some drivers have spoken about their anger that governments had previously recommended buying diesel cars which are now being targeted by the charge. Jim Parker, managing director at car recovery company Boleyn, said the charge was "really unfair". "It's not just us, it is across the industry - everybody that owns a van or a truck and earns a living with it," he said. "We've had a local business, where the margins are so tight, they've now had to cease trading because they can't get a retrofit kit and they can't afford new vehicles." London pollution 'stunts lung capacity' Reality Check: What should owners of old diesels do? Go Ultra Low, an electric vehicle campaign backed by the government, said: "There has never been a better time for drivers to consider making the switch to electric." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-47815117

  21. A woman has died and several people have been injured in a car crash following a police pursuit. The three-car collision happened on Parklands in Waltham Abbey, Essex, at about 22:00 GMT on Thursday.

The woman died at the scene, and the crash has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct. Essex Police said officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire road policing unit had attempted to stop the car on the motorway. The scene of the collision will remain closed for some time, the force added. It is not known how many other people have been injured or if the woman was in the car being pursued by officers.

  23. Hi all, I have been a spectator of the forum for quite some time (included the other forum when it was up and running) and I now have a few questions related to the current salary, allowances and pension. I am towards the end of my training as a Special Constable for The Met but I have also submitted my application for the Regulars and have an interview date confirmed, hence the question about pay. The advertised salary states it is £30k circa for a Regular in The Met however, I have noticed that the allowances have changed around a little I live in London, so I am eligible for both London weighting which is £2,379 and London allowance which is £1,011. These figures were taken from the Met Friendly website as The Met's own website does not give a breakdown. I recall that the London weighting and allowance was around £6k before. I am also aware that the travel Oyster is included with the allowances. https://www.metfriendly.org.uk/services/police-finance-information/police-pay/ The starting salary (after the initial training has been completed) is £27,285 + £2,379 and the London allowance of £1,011, totalling £30,675 Does anyone that has recently started (with the past year or so), know the actual monthly/annual salary and how the allowances are calculated including the pension deduction? Also, how is the overtime calculated when you go over, at the end of your shift and working on rest days? I would appreciate your help and answers. I do apologise if I missed this information which may be in others posts. All I could find were posts that were from a while ago and not related to the current figures. Thank you. S
