More premature deaths from heart attacks and strokes could be caused by extra air pollution caused by a new Ikea store in Sheffield, a report says.

The report recommending plans for the store in Tinsley are approved said the store will have a negative impact on the area’s ‘already poor air quality’ and cause a ‘small number’ of additional premature deaths.

But the report also states the store will have health benefits by creating jobs and training opportunities.
