Tory Mayoral candidate Susan Hall has blasted the “devastating impact” Sadiq Khan’s Ulez policy will have on “hard-working Londoners” after the High Court ruled the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone lawful.

Five Conservative-led councils – Bexley, Bromley, Harrow, Hillingdon and Surrey County – brought the case against the Mayor of London but were overruled. Judge Justice Swift said: “While the consultation conducted was not in-depth, it was lawful.”
