People living in parts of England get warned by government of very high air pollution levels caused by Sahara sand.

Today is not a great day for a jog in parts of the UK. Air pollution is hitting maximum levels in several parts of the country. The pollution is caused by mix of Sahara dust and local and mainland European emissions. 

Especially people with lung or heart disease should avoid strong exercise outside. People with asthma might have to use their inhaler more often. In case you experience sore eyes, cough or sore throat should consider reducing activity says the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs site.

The Sahara sand gets carried to Europe and UK by high winds. When it the dust comes down in rain everything gets covered i a red dirt. 

The DEFRA has a 5 day forecast for air pollution available here. Today DEFRA expects for England and Wales, Moderate to High air pollution levels are forecast for central and southeast England, to the south and east of a line from around The Wash to Cheshire to east Devon, with local Very High levels expected in parts of East Anglia and the East Midlands.
