 Organisations and businesses across the Bristol area came together to mark the UK’s first National Clean Air Day on June 15 by urging drivers to switch off vehicle engines to reduce exhaust emissions. Eleanor Combley, leader of Bristol's Green Party councillors, said: "This is an invisible public health crisis and Green councillors are impatient to see people’s concerns translated into real improvements in air quality. We look forward to the Mayor’s upcoming progress report next month on action towards achieving clean air in our city.”
