About air quality in Bath

Clean air matters. According to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, air pollution is a contributory factor to some 40,000 premature deaths in the UK every year. There’s also evidence that it can cause lung damage in babies and children, and contributes to lung and heart disease in older people.
