A local authority made more than £478,000 from a low-emission zone over the first four months of the scheme.

Glasgow City Council said it issued 20,134 fines between June and September this year, recovering £478,560.

The low-emission zone (LEZ) came into effect on 1 June, and all vehicles entering the city centre must now be compliant with emission standards or face a fine.

Last month, the Court of Session ruled the scheme was lawful and proportionate following a legal challenge from business owner William Paton, owner of Paton’s Accident Repair Centre in the Townhead area of the city.
