It’s the bank holiday. It’s a glorious day (finally). The sun is beaming down on you as you’re sat on your sun-lounger sipping your favourite drink. You breathe in the dense, polluted, smog. Wait! This isn’t the spring you dream of!
The UK is the 10th most polluted country in the world, a place where air pollution is attributed to around 40,000 deaths per year. Alarmingly, air pollution has also been linked to heightened stroke and dementia risk, as well as pulmonary disease.
Nitrogen dioxide is one of the largest contributors to air pollution and is produced by vehicle fumes. To combat this, local governments are introducing Clean Air Zones across the country.
