Pollutionwatch: Rising smoke and falling particles

In the wake of the recent fire at a plastics recycling plant in Smethwick, Dr Gary Fuller, Environmental Research Group, has written an article in the Guardian (7 July 2013) in which he mentions work by King’s College London and Public Health England to track smoke from major fires, including those at construction sites, warehouses, waste depots and the August 2011 riots in London. The work is carried out to measure air pollution in surrounding areas.
