From October 25 this year the existing Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will expand from its current boundaries to cover everything within the North and South Circular roads. Any vehicle driving within or into the zone will need to meet strict emission standards or pay a £12.50 charge.

Hsan Khan runs a convenience shop on Fore Street. He opened his business at the beginning of 2020 just before the pandemic hit. Hsan told MyLondon: "You can see there are no customers. From this morning we’ve just made £30. "From eight to midday. Less than minimum wages, forget about electricity." He thinks the ULEZ will continue this run of bad luck. He continued: "This area is a lot of poor people. Many with less than minimum wage. "Why spend the £12.50 when you could spend that on meat on the other side. "Myself if they charged me that I wouldn’t come. That’s food for my two kids."
