pollution, which is associated with a range of respiratory and throat problems.
The report found that:
- NOx pollution levels were worse at Manchester Piccadilly than at tested locations in central Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Leicester, Nottingham, Southampton and Wolverhampton.
- NOx pollution levels outside Manchester town hall were slightly lower than at Piccadilly, but were still almost twice those recorded at locations in Coventry, central Norwich and south Manchester, and were much higher than at tested locations in Aberdeen, Plymouth and Stoke-on-Trent.
- Central Manchester's NOx pollution was significantly better than Sheffield's. Manchester's NOx was almost a third less than the average at central London locations, was around half of the pollution level at locations in Bath and central Glasgow, and was about one-third of the level of the worst location in Oxford.
This should all get in the Evening News tonight.
