Those flying rats are coming in useful for once, rather that sh****ng all over the place!

Air-monitoring company Plume Labs has strapped air-quality sensors to Flying Rats aka Pigeons to monitor the pollution in the air which me and you breathe on a daily basis to then send back data on just how much damage is done.

“Pigeon Air Patrol” will be interactive, just tweet to @PigeonAir (Marcus tried) and request an air pollution update on their area.

“Air pollution is a huge environmental health issue, killing 10,000 people every year in London alone,” said Romain Lacombe, Plume Labs CEO.

“Putting air sensors on the back of pigeons goes beyond raising awareness of this problem and helps Londoners understand the impact of pollution in an accessible, tangible and immediate way”
