A Pollution Warning Has Been Announced Due To London’s Crappy Air

Come to London, where the air is fresh. Said no one. Ever.

Last year, Sadiq Khan introduced his plan to issue air quality alerts, with warnings being displayed at bus stops, tube stations and along the side of roads. This week, the air has got pretty gross (it’s actually had a pretty appalling start to 2017, after London breached its toxic limits for an entire year after only 5 days!), but now the Mayor has issued an official warning. London’s biggest problem areas are set to hit today (Thursday 19 Jan) in Westminster, City of London, Hammersmith, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston and Wandsworth, as well as moderate pollution being expected across 17 boroughs.

Elderly and those with lung problems have been advised to avoid strenuous activity, particularly outdoors, however, we have a feeling that a lot of people will be wanting to hold their breath for a while.
