Sahara dust

Hello there,

We've just heard from DEFRA that on Thursday there is a risk of pollution over parts of England and Wales. This is due to dust from the Sahara. It's not certain how much dust but it could be evident as early as later today.

Air pollution is a serious issue, particularly if you have a lung condition. We’ve provided some advice on what to do to protect you and your family.

Air quality forecast and health advice is updated daily by DEFRA.

Details are also on Twitter @defraukair

I think it's actually the dust coming out of my loft as they clean up after replacing my roof!
