London mayor issues pollution warnings at bus stops and tube stations
UK capital experiences high pollution levels on Thursday with warnings telling people to avoid strenuous exercise
Air quality alerts have been issued at bus stops, tube stations and roadsides across London because of high pollution levels, said a spokeswoman for the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
The alerts will notify Londoners on Thursday evening during their commute home from work.
People in London who suffer from lung or heart problems have been warned to avoid strenuous exercise. The risks from heightened levels of air pollution enveloping the city have been exacerbated by settled and cold conditions, which have prevented pollutants from being dispersed.
