  • Air pollution court case.

    Lesley A @Lesley4 Langton Green updated 26 days ago

    This was such a sad case. I've been following it for years. The mother has battled away, facing numerous setbacks, to get pollution acknowledged as implicated in her daughter's death. She's finally succeeded, testimony to a mother's love. Well done to her. This should help strengthen the fight against toxic air - a win for us all.
