Moderate air pollution in Northern Ireland

1 Mins read
BT Coleraine

Widespread moderate air pollution is forecast for tomorrow, Friday April 10, across Northern Ireland, which may persist into Saturday across some Southern Eastern areas of the province. Levels will return to LOW on Sunday.

These levels are occurring as a result of prevailing weather conditions, with light winds bringing air pollution from the Continent and adding to the build-up of locally generated air pollutants.

During periods of MODERATE Air Pollution people with pre-existing health conditions may be more sensitive to pollution. Healthy people are unlikely to experience any ill effects.

Hourly updates on levels of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone and carbon monoxide are available on the Department’s website: www.airqualityni.co.uk and the Department’s freephone helpline 0800 556 677, which also offers health advice to those who may be particularly sensitive to air pollution.
