Town's plea for 'pollution busters'.

A team of "pollution busters" is to be recruited in a Midland town as part of a major air clean-up campaign.

Residents living near potential pollution hot spots are being urged to volunteer to enable Bromsgrove District Council officers to fit test tube monitoring equipment for nitrogen dioxide.

The council's head of environmental health services, Mr David Williams, said the exercise was part of the authority's pledge to monitor and reduce air pollution in the town.

He said residents, particularly those living near the M42, M5, A491, A456, and those close to the junctions of Stourbridge Road, Bromsgrove; New Road, Rubery, and Groveley Lane, Coften Hackett, had been urged to come forward.

He said: "We are looking for members of the public who would be willing to help. We would need to put test tube monitoring devices on the outside of their properties."
