“I was delighted to receive this recognition of my efforts to ensure we all have the right to breathe cleaner air.

“My local area was one of the first in the country to enforce new standards for clean air, and we have been leading the way ever since.”

Simon Birkett said:

“The Clean Air in Cities Awards 2014 recognise 24 people who have made a valuable personal contribution to improving air quality in cities including London.
