Ella Kissi-Debrah was just nine when she suffered a fatal asthma attack.

But the impact of her death could be felt for years to come, after the coroner declared last year that air pollution had caused her death – the first such ruling in the UK.

Today, he published a report calling on the government to toughen legal limits.

The government said it would consider the recommendations and respond in due course.
