Air pollution in UK


Urban populations in south-east #UK at greatest risk from #airpollution

More than one in 19 deaths in Britain’s largest towns and cities are linked to air pollution – with people living in urban areas in south-east England more likely to die from exposure to #toxicair, according to a new study.

London, Slough, Chatham, Luton and Portsmouth had the highest proportion of deaths attributable to #pollution the study found, with around one in 16 in 2017 caused by high levels of harmful particulates in the atmosphere.

Although air pollution was a problem in most big cities and urban areas of the UK, it was especially heavily concentrated in the south-east, including places like Southampton, Reading, Oxford, Cambridge, Basildon and Northampton.

Air pollution was the UK’s largest environmental #risk to public #health, it said, producing the equivalent of 40,000 deaths a year nationally. It urged the government to introduce stricter legal guidelines on particulate matter emissions to help tackle the problem.

What change need to be made on a local / national level after revealing such results? I would like to address all the AQ professionals for their ideas.
