Report: Air Pollution Could Kill 160,000 in Next Decade

More than 160,000 people could die over the next decade from strokes and heart attacks caused by air pollution warns the British Heart Foundation (BHF). While there are an estimated 11,000 deaths per year at the moment, BHF cautions that this number will rise as the population continues to age and wants the UK to meet World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines on air pollution by 2030. Four in 10 children attend school in a high-pollution community.
