Cloud of toxic smog set to hit Wales could trigger asthma attacks and heart problems, experts warn
South Wales will be worst hit by the swathes of air pollution according to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
(TAP – If the pollution was coming from the continent as claimed, where exactly is it coming from? More likely this is another in the chemtrail attack. Testing out poisons to see how many people they can knock out from the air. This is a step up in the depopulation agenda.)
Air pollution that could trigger asthma attacks and heart problems is set to smother parts of Wales on Thursday, according to official warnings.
A pollution forecast from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) shows South Wales will be worst hit by a cloud of potentially toxic smog from the continent.
Yellow warnings are in place for Mid and West Wales, indicating “moderate” pollution levels, while North Wales will escape with “low” pollution.
Experts said levels will be high enough to cause sore throats and itchy eyes even in otherwise healthy people, while vulnerable individuals will be most at risk.
Follow doctor’s advice
Across Britain air pollution will peak in Doncaster, where levels are expected to reach nine on the scale, indicating “high”.
Swathes of the southwest, London, the southeast, Midlands and the north are also braced for moderate to high pollution levels.
A spokesman for Defra said: “Adults and children with heart or lung problems are at greater risk of symptoms.
“Follow your doctor’s usual advice about exercising and managing your condition.
“It is possible that very sensitive individuals may experience health effects even on low air pollution days.”
Pollution building in cities
Levels are expected to remain raised until the weekend due to a swathe of air being dragged in from Europe.
The current calm and mild weather in Britain is also fuelling the problem by allowing pollution to build up, especially in cities.
A Met Office spokesman said: “Some individuals, such as those with existing heart or lung conditions, may experience increased symptoms.
“The Met Office is working very closely with Defra to ensure they have the most up-to-date and accurate air quality forecasts in order to provide relevant advice to the public.”
The main risk is from “particulate matter” – small particles and chemicals thrown into the air from motor vehicles and fires.
Experts said levels in London on Wednesday were three-times the recommended EU limit.
Moderate or high levels
Chris Burton, forecaster for The Weather Network, said: “A combination of light winds and a slight breeze off the near-continent has led to pollution levels rocketing across parts of the UK.
“High pressure is sat right on top of the UK, preventing pollution from dispersing and keeping it trapped at the surface.
“Pollution levels are expected to be moderate or high across much of England and Wales through Thursday, with parts of eastern Scotland also elevated levels of pollution.
“Particulate matter is the main concern with levels well above recommended levels.”
Pollutions levels should have dropped off enough in time for Friday’s partial solar eclipse.
The moon will take a path in front of the sun for the first time in 15 years – blotting out up to 98% of its disc.
