How can I find out about local air pollution?
You can find out about emissions in your area from the Government's Air Information Resource (tel: 0800 556677 or check @DefraUKAir for updates). If you live in London, check How polluted is my road? or London Air's map. More information can be found on Environmental Protection UK's air quality pages.
You can also check pollution through homecheck.co.uk, which gives information about different environmental risks where you live.
