In an official press release, the group explained the motivation behind this day of action saying World Health Organisation figures suggest “nine out of ten people breathe polluted air, estimating seven million people die every year as a result”.

The group said: “Our intention is to raise this issue within the community and galvanise support to pressure authorities into acting against large scale polluters.”

The group — including Roland — will also be setting up a stall in Christchurch Green to discuss what can be done about the situation. For further information, visit wansteadclimateaction.com.
