Untitled. A quarter of UK homes sit in areas with dangerously high levels of air pollution, an new nationwide study has found.
The study - commissioned by The Central Office of Public Interest (COPI) - discovered that the air outside the doors of almost eight million homes in the UK exceeds one or more of the World Health Organisation's (WHO) recommended limits for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) or particulate matter. Researchers at Imperial College London who conducted the study divided the UK into 20m-by-20m squares and fed emissions data into computer models to produce the most detailed analysis of pollution levels in the UK to date. COPI has said that estate agents may be breaking the law when failing to inform buyers that air outside their home exceeds WHO recommendations. As a result, a new air pollution rating system has been launched to offer an air quality report for every UK address.
