‘AIR POL­LU­TION PLAGUES UK’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LON­DON: A UN re­port yes­ter­day has slammed the UK for fail­ing to tackle the “plague” of air pol­lu­tion, while also warn­ing of Brexit risks. “Air pol­lu­tion con­tin­ues to plague the UK,” read the re­port by UN ex­pert Baskut Tun­cak, to be pre­sented at the Hu­man Rights Coun­cil in Geneva which runs un­til Sept 29. Over 40,000 pre­ma­ture deaths a year are linked to air pol­lu­tion, noted the re­port which ar­gued that through in­ac­tion the govern­ment has “vi­o­lated its obli­ga­tions” to pro­tect chil­dren. – AFP
