Barry Gardiner, Shadow Minister for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, came to Bristol to support Thangam’s campaign for clean air.
Thangam took Barry to the Centre because pollution levels there break legal limits. James, a Labour volunteer, dressed up at the street stall to draw attention to the problem of breathing polluted air.
Thangam, Barry and Kye Dudd (Labour candidate for Cabot) spoke to passers-by about the need for cleaner buses and action on air quality and many people signed the Bristol West petition.
After helping at the street stall, Barry went on to canvass in St Werburgh’s.
