Air Pollution Plan

Plans to tackle air pollution in Cornwall are being revealed.
Pirate FM has learnt Tideford near Saltash is a hotspot.
Junction work and traffic management schemes could be on the cards.
Dennis Congdon's house overlooks the busy A38 which runs right through the village: "It's always been bad here. It's never been quiet. They were going to put a dual carriageway round the top and I thought, yeah that'd great, but nothing's come of it so that's it.
"This is the main road into Cornwall and everybody's got to come through here.
"We get a lot of lorries come through here. It's bad at times but you get so used to it, you don't take any notice of it now."
Cornwall Council has already revealed improvement plans for the Camborne and Redruth areas and is now revealing how it will extend those to places like Tideford.
Check your air quality.
MP for south-east Cornwall, Sheryll Murray, wants to see a push towards cleaner cars: "It's not only the air pollution but of course it is also a hazard for pedestrians to try and cross that road, visit the shops or what have you and we desperately need some sort of crossing there.
"I don't know how on earth you would be able to bypass the village with regards to diverting the traffic in another direction but there's a clear case for cleaner cars, cleaner traffic and I know this is something the government is working towards."
