    DescriptionDr James Allan, from the University of Manchester, said: “Particle pollution was certainly high during March, but most of it (if not all) was made out of things like ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulphate and carbon compounds. The carbon-containing particles typically come from vehicle exhausts, wood burning, cooking and reactions between air pollution and sunlight. These are all things you would expect from pollution sources from within the UK and mainland Europe.”
