I’ve recently moved to London and noticed the air here isn’t very fresh.
The government will face the Supreme Court today for this very reason. Fifteen areas in the UK currently breach air quality laws. In London it’s expected legal pollution levels won’t be reached until 2025.
The government insists improvements have been made in recent decades. However, with 29,000 premature deaths attributed to air pollution in the UK annually and a severe pollution warning issued in London just this week, I think there’s a long way to go.
