Smog Alert! Smog Alert!

It’s baaaack! Following a brief break over summer, Warsaw’s smog problem has made a theatrical return with analysts warning that the number of harmful particles in the air has, at times, exceeded EU limits by over 300%.

The news is a blow to City Hall who have repeatedly struggled to persuade local residents to curb harmful emissions from antiquated coal-fired heaters and cars.
