Stay with us on BBC One - it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC London News, with me, Ben Bland.

:00:00.:00:17.

The mayor is calling on the government to spend more

:00:18.:00:19.

than ?0.5 billion on compensating people who are prepared to give

:00:20.:00:22.

Sadiq Khan says his proposals for a diesel scrappage scheme

:00:23.:00:27.

would reduce air pollution, but his opponents disagree.

:00:28.:00:30.

Our political editor Tim Donovan reports.

:00:31.:00:34.

Much air pollution may be invisible, but it's killing 10,000 people

:00:35.:00:37.

Diesel vehicles should be scrapped, says the mayor, and the Government

:00:38.:00:42.

Unless they step in and take action against polluting diesel vehicles,

:00:43.:00:50.

I'm afraid they will be held to be in breach again of the law.

:00:51.:00:55.

It's in the Government's interest - not just because of the law,

:00:56.:01:00.

but because they can help address the poor quality air in London -

:01:01.:01:03.

to step in and have a national diesel scrappage scheme.

:01:04.:01:06.

Now the mayor wants ?3500 offered for each van

:01:07.:01:09.

or minibus and ?2000 in credit for the 130,000 private vehicles.

:01:10.:01:16.

What I would like to see is allowing people to move not

:01:17.:01:23.

just from a diesel car, but hopefully to electric cars

:01:24.:01:26.

and things like that, because you have to have...

:01:27.:01:28.

If you're going to get rid of one car, you have

:01:29.:01:30.

to have an environmentally friendly alternative.

:01:31.:01:32.

There are some who point to Paris for lessons,

:01:33.:01:36.

where the Champs-Elysees is closed to traffic once a month,

:01:37.:01:39.

and sections of the right and left bank of the Seine are now

:01:40.:01:42.

permanently given over to walkers and cyclists.

:01:43.:01:46.

Using a system of stickers on high polluting days,

:01:47.:01:48.

some vehicles are not allowed on the road.

:01:49.:01:51.

And in 2020, the mayor here says all diesel cars will be banned

:01:52.:01:54.

In London, they're saying it's not quite what it's cracked up to be.

:01:55.:02:00.

If we pursue the programme we're going through,

:02:01.:02:02.

by 2020 we will have reduced the air pollution in London by at least

:02:03.:02:05.

half, and that's the date at which they are talking

:02:06.:02:08.

about doing a diesel ban in quite a small area of Paris.

:02:09.:02:11.

So, you know, the programme we have got is a very practical one

:02:12.:02:14.

From this October in London, drivers of the most polluting

:02:15.:02:23.

vehicles will have to pay a daily toxicity charge of ?10 to come

:02:24.:02:26.

Sutton United fans braved the cold this morning and queued up

:02:27.:02:36.

from the early hours to get tickets for one the biggest games

:02:37.:02:39.

In just over a week they play Arsenal, in the fifth

:02:40.:02:42.

round of the FA Cup, and amongst the fans, hopes

:02:43.:02:45.

are running high for a Cup upset, as Jim Wheble's been finding out.

:02:46.:02:50.

It was all about this today in Sutton.

:02:51.:02:52.

It meant an early start, time to contemplate the big game.

:02:53.:02:58.

We're going to have a bacon roll, cup of tea.

:02:59.:03:10.

I do hope Arsenal bring out their full team.

:03:11.:03:12.

I had heard a rumour that this flicker of confidence was in part

:03:13.:03:16.

It's our reserve goalkeeper, Wayne - roly-poly goalie.

:03:17.:03:22.

The roly-poly goalie is around here somewhere.

:03:23.:03:31.

I've got a feeling we will have to catch up with him.

:03:32.:03:34.

The queue for tickets was getting longer and longer and longer.

:03:35.:03:36.

And it was this goal, in the fourth round against Leeds,

:03:37.:03:49.

which has made the game against Premier League giants

:03:50.:03:52.

They call it the magic of the FA Cup.

:03:53.:03:55.

Realistically, I think you're the one getting carried away.

:03:56.:04:06.

I've got my feet firmly on the ground.

:04:07.:04:08.

We're just delighted to be in the fifth round.

:04:09.:04:10.

We've seen you on the sauce bottles and T-shirts.

:04:11.:04:17.

Do you think you're going to step in to the goal on the big day?

:04:18.:04:20.

Do you think you might be called upon?

:04:21.:04:22.

It would be good, but we will be leaving the heat

:04:23.:04:25.

on Arsenal at the moment, with the chilli sauce.

:04:26.:04:27.

Now, let's have a look at the weather.

:04:28.:04:36.

It's going to be a dry and largely sunny day,

:04:37.:04:39.

And that wind means it'll still feel pretty cold,

:04:40.:04:42.

with a top temperature of eight degrees Celsius.

:04:43.:04:44.

Claudia-Liza Armah will be with you during BBC Breakfast,

:04:45.:04:50.

but until then have a lovely evening.

:04:51.:04:52.

I'm sure most of us are glad to see the back of this weekend. It's been

:04:53.:05:15.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:16.:05:18.

Watchers photos, like Sheffield earlier today. I suspect some of the

:05:19.:05:22.

lying snow will be blown around by strong winds starting to develop.

:05:23.:05:28.

The odd spot of drizzle into the far north-east. The wind strengthening

:05:29.:05:35.

here. Already signs of something a little bit miles, temperatures

:05:36.:05:39.

climbing up. However it's not going to feel that warm straightaway.

:05:40.:05:44.

Because of the strength of the wind. The wind however will break up the

:05:45.:05:48.

cloud, so some sunshine into central and Southern areas. The cloud is

:05:49.:05:57.

thickening all the time. The odd bit of drizzle. Some sunny spells and

:05:58.:06:04.

highs of around 80 degrees. Similar story
