THE deputy leader of the Green Party, Amelia Womack, visited Bradford today to launch their clean air campaign “Let Bradford Breathe”.

In February, the High Court ruled that the Government’s current plans to tackle air pollution do not go far enough to tackle the crisis.

Matt Edwards, spokesperson for Bradford Green Party, said: “Not enough is being done to tackle this problem. The main political parties are in denial about the air pollution crisis.

“Most air pollution in urban areas is from road transport, but instead of trying to get traffic off our roads, the Conservatives and Labour want to build even more roads.”

Ms Womack added: “What we want is for people to have a healthy option. Bradford Council should be doing more to create clean air zones, put money into public transport to get people out of cars and encourage more electric car users by installing more charging points.

“We want people to be able to have green options,” she said.
