You’ve probably seen the news reports about the smog that is affecting the UK today. The map below shows you where the highest rates are expected, though rural areas will have lower levels than towns and cities.
Anyone experiencing discomfort such as sore eyes, cough or sore throat should consider reducing activity, particularly outdoors. If you have any concerns, please ring 111 in the first instance which will provide help and advice for your condition. If it is more serious this option will not delay an ambulance being dispatched.
