Air pollution and smog alerts are monitored by the Met Office. Air quality information is featured prominently on the front page of the GLA website, with side bar alerts on medium and high pollution days. As high pollution episodes are highly influenced by weather patterns the Met Office remains the appropriate source for information around pollution episodes.
