Our activist, former candidate for Callowland Ward, Sean Sweeney is quoted in this month's My Watford News:
"The shocking news that nearly all diesel cars fail to meet toxic nitrogen oxide pollution limits are a great cause for concern. In a commuter down such as ours, we are forced to confront heavy congestion and toxic air on a daily basis. The council has already admitted to being highly unlikely to meet air quality targets and more needs to be done in order to protect the health of our residents."
Guardian: Nearly all new diesel cars exceed official pollution limits
Watford Borough Council on air quality objectives: "It has established there are currently a number of locations where the objectives are unlikely to be met"
