Professor Lewis adds “there is no guarantee that all types of pollution will fall together. For example, electric cars still create particle pollution from road abrasion and brake wear. Because of that, walking, cycling and public transport remain the cleanest options.” 🚗 (3/3)

The UK's transition to net zero emissions is likely to bring some immediate benefits to air quality, experts say. However, not all pollutants are guaranteed to fall because the sources of air pollution are so varied... 📉 (1/3)
