Schools need protection from air pollution

  1. Local residents need protection from pollution too, a dozen or so coaches twice a day puffing their toxic fumes, plus all the traffic that is sitting there in both directions unable to move past the coaches. The children breathe in the fumes too whilst they wait to get on the coaches. Not near the school itself – Colyton Grammar School, yet the unlucky residents have to endure the worst of it, we have a right to clean air too and the days of ‘bussing’ children all over the place should stop.
