Air pollution coupled with warm weather has led to a smog warning over Easter and can cause health risks. This week the air pollution in London has hit its highest level since 2003.

People with asthma and the elderly have been warned to be careful about their health as the high pollution levels may affect their breathing. People at risk have been asked to avoid exercising outdoors in the afternoon and drivers are being encouraged not to make unnecessary journeys. Health officials have recommended that people should carry their inhalers with them and whenever possible shut their windows. This warm weather is expected to continue through the Easter weekend for most of UK, especially in England and Wales.
