Croydon named worst place for Asthma sufferers

Croydon has been named the worst place in London for those with Asthma.

Research from the charity Astahma UK says those with the condition are most likely to end up in hospital, or even die from an attack in the south London borough, compared to other areas including neighbouring Bromley, which appears to be the best place for sufferers to live. 

London Live spoke to Dr Samantha Walker who is the director of research and poicy for Asthma UK.
