U.K. government measures to tackle air pollution still don't comply with European Union legislation to improve air quality and meet nitrogen dioxide limits, Britain's High Court ruled Wednesday.Britain's highest court, the Supreme Court, ordered the government last year to come up with a plan to bring air pollution within legal limits as soon as possible.Environmental law firm ClientEarth said those plans did not go far enough to tackle nitrogen dioxide emissions and launched legal proceedings against the government in the High Court.U.K. government data last year showed only five out of a total 43 pollution zones in Britain would comply by the end of 2015, 15 zones by 2020, 38 by 2025 and 40 by 2030 .
