Call for clean air!

Lucy Care in Darley Park, DerbyResults are back from the air quality test set up by Focus Team member Tom Bull last month with support from Friends of the Earth.

Air in one of the front gardens near the Royal Derby Hospital is three times as polluted with damaging nitrogen dioxide as air close to Nutwood Local Nature Reserve in Darley Abbey.

Councillor Lucy Care said "If we go somewhere where the air is really fresh, we can tell the difference. For people with lung problems it can be the difference between breathing easily or struggling for every breath."

We know what action is needed to reduce air pollution. We need to use cleaner fuels in our road vehicles and make our homes more energy efficient.

Liberal Democrats are committed to doing both these things. Go to www.libdems.org.uk/manifesto to find out more.
