Brisk walk ‘can boost health’

ACTIVE TRAVEL

Four out of ten adults aged 40-60 walk less than ten minutes continuously each month at a brisk pace, according to Public Health England (PHE). 

In a new report extolling the health benefits of walking, PHE notes that walking levels have declined over recent decades.
