In order to make sure this second inquest is as comprehensive as possible I need the very best legal representation.
This isn’t just about Ella. Air pollution causes around 40,000 premature deaths per year in the UK, and levels of nitrogen dioxide have been illegally high since 2010 in the vast majority of urban areas in the UK.
The government has been taken to court three times over the illegal levels of air pollution in the UK and lost each time. And yet still the authorities are failing to act. The statistics do not show the human impact of these government failings – I believe that Ella’s inquest will demonstrate her suffering over 3 long hard years and will provide the impetus for change.
I need to raise £25,000 to help me fund some of the legal costs involved in securing a new inquest into Ella’s death. This would go a long way to helping me uncover the real reasons that led to Ella’s death, and prevent any other child suffering the same fate.
Your support could mean the difference between life and death for other children and adults living in our polluted cities.
