Air pollution low in Pinner, figures show

Levels of air pollution in Pinner are low, according to new figures. It comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan launched an air quality consultation where he stated he wants to take urgent action to end London’s public health emergency. Almost 10,000 Londoners die from long-term exposure to air pollution every year and 443 schools in the capital are in areas exceeding safe air quality levels. Air quality alerts are now at bus stops, tube stations and roadsides across the capital to notify Londoners during the worst incidents of air pollution. Air quality alerts will be displayed at 2,500 bus countdown signs and river pier signs across London, signs on the busiest main roads into London and on electronic update signs in the entrances of all 270 London Underground stations. The move is part of a package of measures to clean up air in the capital. Mr Khan explained the thinking behind the move. He said:  “I believe that Londoners have a right to know about the quality of the air that they breathe. These new alerts will allow them to take precautions and help them plan ahead to avoid the worst instances of air pollution. “I am doing everything within my power as Mayor to put the health of Londoners first. I hope that these alerts will become less and less frequent as we take steps to make our already great city a cleaner place to live, work and study in.” Picture courtesy of Hoss Photography
