4th April - Today's News: England's Air Pollution Begins to Clear
UK air pollution: high levels remain but forecast to fall - but not before David Cameron accused of misunderstanding air pollution crisis. Personally all I've noticed is that it's been misty and there's been some sand deposits on my wheely bin ..... Compared with many parts of the world (pollution haze like this is endemic in much of SE Asia as well as cities like Mexico City and even in California) it's really not been a big deal and I think where it not for media reports most folk would have been unaware of it. Though I accept it may have been a lot worse in big towns and cities where there is normally a lot more air pollution to start with.
