3,000 schools face threat of toxic diesel

Up to 3,000 British schools are situated in areas with potentially dangerous levels of air pollution. Scientists at King’s found that many schools in London lie in areas where nitrogen dioxide breaches the 40mcg EU limit. Professor Frank Kelly, Environmental Research Group, said: ‘It is clear that children attending very many schools are breathing polluted air for all those years they are a pupil.’ This was also reported by London Evening Standard and BBC Newsnight.
