Vox Pop: Were you concerned about the higher-than-usual levels of pollution in the air?

Were you worried about the smog?

Were you worried about the smog?

Victoria Bull asks people in Hemel town centre whether they were worried about the smog over the last week.

idris foster-edwards. apsley:

“I don’t really think it has been an issue here. It has been a bit misty but not too much of a problem. Some people will probably be more concerned if they have general health problems.”

JAYA POWELL, WARNERS END:

“It is a bizarre situation as what is happening is quite rare. The issue of pollution isn’t very well known in the public sphere, I think the environment comes low down on our list of priorities.”

SALLIE HUSSEY, CORNER HALL:

“I have noticed a difference in the last week, it has made me rub my eyes as though I have just come off a beach. I think it’s just a freak occurrence, but it has made my car filthy!”

DONALD KING, LAWN LANE:

“I think we have been quite lucky and got away with it, compared to some other areas. I don’t think it is as much of a health risk as people have been warning.”

RICHARD MARTIN, TOWN CENTRE:

“I have chest problems so it has been leaving me a little short of breath. Pollution is one of those things that has always gone on but it hasn’t really been on our radar that much before.”
