‘High levels’ of Air Pollution to spread across England

Air-pollutionPeople in parts of England should be braced for “very high” levels of air pollution on Wednesday, the government has said.

Environment department Defra said high levels recorded on Tuesday in eastern England and the Midlands would spread.

The pollution – a mix of local and European emissions and dust from the Sahara – is set to move across southern England, the Midlands and East Anglia.

Those with lung or heart disease are urged to avoid strong exercise outside.

Defra has a 10-point scale for measuring air quality – with 1 meaning there is a “low” risk of air pollution and 10 warning of “very high” levels.

Levels hit the maximum of 10 in north-west Norfolk on Tuesday.

Readings for Wednesday are expected to reach 8 or 9 in much of southern England, East Anglia and the Midlands, and possibly 10 along England’s southern coast.
