Nine-year-old Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, from London, is the first person in the country to have pollution listed as cause of death.
London’s mayor says a legal ruling, linking air pollution to a young girl’s death, could be a turning point in a public health crisis.
The coroner’s finding followed a tireless campaign by the nine-year-old’s mother.
Al Jazeera’s Paul Brennan reports from the Southwark Coroner’s Court in London, UK.
