Drivers call for protests at City Hall amid fury over Sadiq Khan's 'ultra-low emission zone' covering the whole of London that will charge motorists with cars that are just three years old £12.50 a day 'and raise SIX times more than the congestion charge'

Motorists have reacted with fury at a new London pollution charge covering large swathes of London which is expected to hit one million drivers.

Mayor Sadiq Khan confirmed that ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) - being introduced in Central London next year - will stretch to cover an area surrounded by the North and South Circular roads from October 2021.

The £12.50 per day fee means cash-strapped Transport for London will collect up to £1.5billion a year - six times as much as the £230million from the congestion charge.
