People living along Cornwall's pollution hotspots call for cleaner air.

Pirate FM has learnt fumes are too high on twenty-five routes in the Duchy.

Among them are the main road through Bodmin, the A3047 from Camborne to Redruth and Holmbush Road in St Austell.

John Oxenham is campaigning for better routes in the town. He said: "It's not just fumes, it's noise pollution. As we see more and more trees cut down for development we are losing the lungs of the place.

"People are obviously concerned and it's being compounded all the time. There are no major plans to improve the road or bypass and we are being faced with four or five major supermarket applications and upwards of five thousand houses to be built."

You can check what levels are like where you live here.
