Delivery vans used by Amazon, Royal Mail, supermarket chains and others have been revealed to be one of the biggest sources of air pollutants.

 

Their engines emit up to 23 times the level of toxins permitted under UK law, according to tests published by the Sunday Times.

On-road emissions tests carried out on 26 vans found that the Mercedes-Benz Citan 1.5-litre diesel was one of the worst polluters – emitting more than 20 times the legal limit of 0.08g.
