Air pollution is certainly a problem in this area.
A couple of months ago when I was getting sore eyes and sneezing a lot, I assumed it was hayfever or some such condition.
But then, having spoken to the neighbours, I learned that others had endured the same condition.
I am not a hayfever sufferer and the condition went away.
I assume the cause was air pollution.
Whatever proof I needed of the dirtiness of the atmosphere comes on the black glass surface on a table I have in the garden.
Leave it for a matter of an hour or so and it is covered in sandy and other airway-congesting particles.
We live in London, seemingly unaware of the pollution all around us.
No doubt many health conditions are aggravated and even caused by this gradual poisoning of the air that we breath.
The time when the impurity of the London atmosphere becomes most apparent is when going to other parts of the country, particularly coastal areas.
The air is clean and healthy – something that should apply right across the country.
