The UK’s air pollution limits for 2017 were exceeded in the first 5 days of the year.
Breathing polluted air has been linked to premature births, stunted development of children’s lungs, cancer and aggravation of pre-existing lung disease. Children are particularly vulnerable.
Having been taken to court over its failure to tackle this issue, the British Government has now published an Air Quality Plan, but scientists and medical professionals argue that this plan does not go anywhere near far enough.
Curious about why children are so affected by air pollution? How drivers are the most affected? How we have arrived in this situation and what needs to be done?
