Air Quality Information Bulletin - 18 March 2015

News published: 18/03/2015

High air pollution is currently (18 March 2015) being measured across a number of regions in England and Northern Ireland.  This is due to particulate matter from a combination of local sources and brought in via light winds from the continent.

These levels are likely to continue to be measured across a number of regions today.  Levels are expected to return to low by Friday or earlier as changes in weather conditions lead to the dispersal of pollutants.

Further information on health advice can be found here:

Forecasts, latest measurements and health advice are available on our website and Defra's freephone helpline (0800 556677).  Updates on current and forecast levels of air pollution can also be found on Twitter (@DefraUKAir).
