Air quality campaigners have pledged to hold all councillors to their anti-pollution promises after the May 3 election.
Clean Air for Brent(CAfB) has received policy statements from all four main political parties – Labour, Conservative, Green and Liberal Democrats - ahead of the local elections next Thursday.
Unsurprisingly, all parties have said they are committed to improving the air quality in the borough.
Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) levels in many wards are higher than the European Union’s legal limit of 40 ?g/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter of air), as reported by the Times.
Fiona Malaisho, chairwoman of CAfB, said: “We as residents all need to do our part, but the council must lead us with meaningful action to reduce air pollution and enforcement to back it up.

“We will hold all those elected on May 3 to their promises on clean air.
“Securing clean air for Brent should be the defining issue of the next four years.”
