For those of us with hayfever it’s going to be a tough couple of days as the Met Office is forecasting ‘very high’ pollen levels in our region.

The Met Office has issued the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday and is reminding people that drinking alcohol can make your symptoms worse as it contains histamine, the chemical that sets off allergy symptoms in the body.

One in five people in the UK suffer from hayfever and 95 per cent of those sufferers are allergic to grass pollen rather than tree or weed pollen.
