  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Ella Kissi-Debrah death: coroner says air pollution limits must be toughened” – below is their description.

    Ella Kissi-Debrah was just nine when she suffered a fatal asthma attack.

    But the impact of her death could be felt for years to come, after the coroner declared last year that air pollution had caused her death – the first such ruling in the UK.

    Today, he published a report calling on the government to toughen legal limits.

    The government said it would consider the recommendations and respond in due course.
