The British Medical Assocation has published a report calling on government to set national targets to reduce traffic, diesel emissions and vehicle noise, and encourage healthier forms of transport. Air pollution reaches levels harmful to health once every five days in parts of Britain, reports The Times (p4).

East Sussex and Rochester in Kent registered the most days on which government standards for ozone levels were exceeded. Leeds city centre and Port Talbot, south Wales, were the worst areas for particulate pollution. It is estimated that particulates, tiny flecks of soot coated in petroleum chemicals cause as many as 10,000 premature deaths a year.
