The UK will become the first major economy to adopt air quality goals based on World Health Organisation recommendations.
The most polluting log burners will be banned within three years while coal could be outlawed under the Government’s new air pollution strategy.
Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the Government wanted to reduce particulate emissions in the UK by 30 per cent by 2020, and by 46 per cent by 2030.
UK proposals include new regulations on farmers, wood-burning stoves and diesel cars
