Pollution levels are HIGH today. Air Quality Index is well over 100 in many areas!

Air Quality is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups when the Air Quality Index exceeds 100.

Huh, Sittingbourne is nearest to me and pretty much nothing else in East Kent. Polution at Sittingbourne is 104, very industrial there so maybe many companies are still working.

The reason I checked is because I "felt it". My doors and windows will be closed today to help keep the muck out, I do not need to feel it worse. Crazy to have such high levels, like you I thought no planes and so much less traffic would lead to low levels of pollution. I shudder to think how high they could have been in normal times, without the lock down, I think I would have been staying indoors anyway.

It said Norwich dosent exist. I havent been out in a while, but im pritty sure it would of been on the news if Norwich had dissapeard. But then with all the corona news maybe not 😆
