Schools should have 'no idling zones', Public Health England chief says
20 March 2019
BBC News reported that Public health chiefs have proposed a ban on cars idling outside school gates in a bid to cut air pollution.
The measure is among a series of UK-wide recommendations put forward by Public Health England.
Public Health England (PHE) medical director Paul Cosford told the BBC: "We should stop idling outside schools and we should make sure that children can walk or cycle to school."
PHE said 28,000 to 36,000 deaths a year in the UK could be attributed to long-term exposure to air pollution
