Pollution makes park dangerous

From: S J Jenkins, Turkey Road, Bexhill

I am extremely worried for the children of Bexhill who use the skatepark in between the new road and the A259.

My child has used it frequently in the last few weeks and I was pleased he was with friends, having fun and being active. But what of his health?

I’d wondered why he had a continuous cough but thought he was run-down, had a virus perhaps.

No, it’s because of pollution. His asthma returned because of the pollution.

It has been so bad every time he’s returned from there after hours of playing with his friends.

I want him to be out playing having fun with his friends but now because of the dangers, I no longer do.

What of the dangers for the children of Bexhill who breathe in these deadly fumes?

Some areas of Bexhill are low in pollution but that area is so dangerous.

What does one do?
