I totally get the massive impact the charges will have on businesses. It’s only fair that their stories are heard and the issue is discussed and considered properly.

We live a mile from where this protest took place. I’m regularly cleaning black diesel residue off the inside of my clinically extremely vulnerable child’s bedroom window. Something has to be done to sort the air quality out, and it needs to be done now.

I don’t know what a fair solution would look like - but for us, safer air can’t come quickly enough.
