The air pollution in Brent has increased dramatically and if nothing is done, the affects could be catastrophic.
Ruth Cadbury Labour MP, “Last week’s air pollution was worse than Beijing’s”
Labour MP Ruth has quoted that ‘last week’s air pollution was worse than Beijing’s’ The Chinese capital Beijing has experienced serious pollution for many years due to emission from five million motor vehicles, coal burning in neighbouring regions and dust storms.
Last week peaked the highest pollution level recorded in the capital since April 2011. Different countries measure pollution in different ways UK measure using a scale between 1 to 10 and last week was 10 in London. Last Monday some parts of London were higher pollution levels than Beijing But this wasn’t the case for most of the week. The WHO (World Health Organisation) suggest that Beijing’s pollution level is five times higher than London’s. Are the UK government going to find a solution before it is too late?
