Batten down the hatches people!
It would appear the good people at DEFRA (The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) have declared a smog alert for the Easter weekend.
From 1500 BST Thursday and through the weekend, they urging the public to take “sensible precautions”. These precautions seem to be:
- Don’t drive the car for short journeys, with the price of petrol now who does? Use your bike instead!
- Avoid exercising outdoors in the afternoon. Correction to above – don’t use your bike in the afternoon 🙂
