'High levels' of air pollution in Frome

Parts of Frome in Somerset have worryingly high levels of pollution, according to a study.

The Mendip District Council air quality survey said hotspots at Market Place and the Butts were close to breaching European objectives.

The report said that air quality was good across other parts of the district council's area.

The authority said it would continue measuring nitrogen dioxide from vehicles at the Frome hotspots.
