Light switch off at night 'would save money'

Switching off London's traffic lights at night could save drivers up to £40m by 2020, a new report has suggested.

The proposals by the Conservatives on the London Assembly claim turning off the lights for six hours overnight could cut fuel costs and reduce pollution.

Richard Tracey of the Conservative group on the London Assembly, Val Shawcross, a Labour member of the assembly, and Stephen Glaister from the RAC Foundation all give their views on the idea.
