Air quality in your area

Information on how to access health advice and monitor air quality forecasts for your area.

Defra provides health advice and a wide range of information to the public on air quality. This is so everyone, especially vulnerable groups, can take appropriate action where necessary.

Our air quality forecast and health advice is updated daily and can be found on the UK Air website, uk-air.defra.gov.uk, and on the Defra air quality feed, @Defraukair.

People should use this resource for regular updates - we also have a freephone helpline (0800 556677).

To be aware our latest forecast available on UK Air shows that air pollution is expected to reach high levels in parts of the South East and East of England on Thursday 18th September 2014.

These levels are likely to remain moderate or high on Friday 19th September but are expected to return to low levels during Saturday.

For more information on causes and the latest forecasts on areas affected please visit UK Air - uk-air.defra.gov.uk
