Britain’s first pollution-busting bus has been launched with the aim of cleaning the surrounding air as it travels through busy streets.

Three fans fitted to the single-decker bus will suck in ultra-fine particles which are trapped by a filter. Go-Ahead, which will test the bus on a route through Southampton, said that it would clean the air up to a height of 10 metres as it travelled along, removing 99.5 per cent of particulate matter.

The expectation is that the air behind the vehicle is cleaner than in front after the device traps PM2.5 particulates, measuring less than 2.5 thousandths of a millimetre.
