Air Quality Warning For Yorkshire Coast

Air Quality Warning For Yorkshire Coast

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 12:28pm 13th September 2016.

Today could be Britain's hottest September day for more than 55 years.

The elderly, young children and those with health issues are being warned to stay cool and there's a specific warning for the Yorkshire Coast.

The DEFRA daily air quality index is forecasting that the Yorkshire Coast is the one area of the country with a high level of air pollution today.

Adults and children with lung problems, and adults with heart problems, are advised to reduce strenuous physical exertion, particularly outdoors, and particularly if they experience symptoms.

People with asthma may find they need to use their reliever inhaler more often. Older people should also reduce physical exertion.

The high level of air pollution is expected to continue through tomorrow, easing off on Thursday.
