Warmer weather is on the way this week and next week.

Temperatures are expected to rise to over 23C by Monday and DEFRA’s pollution forecast predicts that pollution levels will rise from LOW to MODERATE.

A moderate forecast means that adults and children with lung problems, and adults with heart problems, who experience symptoms, should consider reducing strenuous physical activity, particularly outdoors.
