A6 Kibworth declared one of most polluted roads in East Midlands by Friends of the Earth


The A6 through Kibworth, between the Wistow Road and Church Road junctions, is one of the most polluted roads in the East Midlands according to Friends of the Earth.

A survey by the environmental pressure group lists Kibworth as the fourth most polluted place in the East Midlands in a list of 71 places where air quality is in excess of UK agreed maximum levels.

Harborough District Council, which has responsibility for managing air pollution in the Kibworth area, has installed new equipment to monitor the pollution levels.
