The disaster demonstrated to people around the world that it was a real and deadly problem. New regulations were put in place restricting the use of dirty fuels in industry and banning black smoke. These included the Clean Air Acts of 1956 and of 1968, and the City of London (Various Powers) Act of 1954. In 1956 and 1968, Parliament passed two Clean Air Acts, which began the process of eliminating the burning of coal in both people's homes and in factories and residents could only burn smokeless fuels [Davis, Devra L., Bell, Michelle L]. Identify potential gaps or additional assistance needed for this problem, and describe a potential community public health or stewardship intervention (not a clinical intervention) that you feel could be beneficial.

Levels for both pollutants are expected to exceed their targets along the major road networks. In addition, NO2 levels are also expected to exceed targets for central London and around Heathrow Airport.
