South Yorkshire Mayor calls for powers to clean up air

South Yorkshire's mayor is calling on the government to devolve more powers, so air pollution can be tackled at a local level.

Dan Jarvis is joining forces with 13 other city leaders who also want to see more clean air zones - which sees the most polluting vehicles fined.

He says improving the air would improve health, reducing pressure on the NHS and premature deaths.
