Moderate air pollution is likely across Huddersfield today and tomorrow, with levels potentially higher at the weekend, he said.

Mr Pawson said the problems are caused by traffic and industrial pollution becoming trapped by settled weather - and winds from southeast England transporting polluted air from mainland Europe further north.

Defra said: "With southeasterly winds from the Continent dominating, the risk of moderate air pollution is likely to be widespread through this three-day period, with localised areas of High air pollution also possible.”
