Victoria Bull asks people in Hemel town centre whether they were worried about the smog over the last week.

idris foster-edwards. apsley:

“I don’t really think it has been an issue here. It has been a bit misty but not too much of a problem. Some people will probably be more concerned if they have general health problems.”

JAYA POWELL, WARNERS END:

“It is a bizarre situation as what is happening is quite rare. The issue of pollution isn’t very well known in the public sphere, I think the environment comes low down on our list of priorities.”

SALLIE HUSSEY, CORNER HALL:

“I have noticed a difference in the last week, it has made me rub my eyes as though I have just come off a beach. I think it’s just a freak occurrence, but it has made my car filthy!”

DONALD KING, LAWN LANE:

“I think we have been quite lucky and got away with it, compared to some other areas. I don’t think it is as much of a health risk as people have been warning.”

RICHARD MARTIN, TOWN CENTRE:

“I have chest problems so it has been leaving me a little short of breath. Pollution is one of those things that has always gone on but it hasn’t really been on our radar that much before.”
