Calls to improve air quality in Cheshire

Campaigners are calling for more to be done to improve air quality in parts of Cheshire.

The call comes following the government’s Air Quality plan target for 2021¬†which includes measures to be taken in Stockport to improve conditions.

The Friends for Earth organisation is calling for more measures to encourage people to use bikes or walk where possible.

It wants to see more Clean Air Zones rolled out where drivers would be charged for using diesel vehicles in certain areas.
