Radon is a radioactive gas, we can't see, smell or taste it: you need special equipment to detect it. It comes from the rocks and soil found everywhere in the UK. The radon level in the air we breathe outside is very low but can be higher inside buildings.
Radon is everywhere but some parts of the country are more likely to have high levels in buildings than others. We have worked with the British Geological Survey to produce a data set and maps of the radon prone areas.
