We hear from Phoebe Holmes and Sion Williams from Bristol Friends of the Earth about their campaign to stop pollution of the city's air which, they estimate, is 297 deaths per year associated with air pollution in Bristol.
Some areas of Bristol, notably Rupert Street and Parson Street, have levels of NO2 emissions from vehicles that regularly exceed EU limits. Wider areas around the Centre and M32 also have high pollution levels which cause health issues and statistically significant reduction in life expectancy. These typically most affect those less well off who live next to busy traffic. Diesel vehicles are the worst for polluting emissions but petrol vehicles produce them too.
Bristol FoE is working with other organisations to raise awareness of the issues and get action on several fronts, such as:
– Discouraging the most polluting vehicles from the Centre
– Encouraging Walking and Cycling as an alternative to car use
– Reducing emissions from busses
– Reducing emissions from taxis
– Encouraging electric vehicles and car clubs

We hear in depth from David Scott at Fresh Start Foundation
The Fresh Start Foundation (FSF) is an Independent Peoples Inquiry into all forms of Child Sexual Abuse in Scotland. Having witnessed the failures of existing authorities to protect the children of this nation, and having seen the loss of confidence in the official enquiry, we have concluded that ordinary Scots must stand up to this challenge. The resignations from the official enquiry, and the governmental interference cited as reasons for those resignations, were the last straw. We, the people, will investigate what has happened and what is happening. Our governments, and those institutions charged with delivering justice, have failed. We will no longer endure that failure. We have decided to act.
This investigation will not be limited only to abuse within an institutional context but will look at every form of abuse that has occurred and is occurring. Thus we are determined to address abuse within institutions, Satanist Ritual Abuse, trafficking and abuse for commercial gain in the sex industry, abuse by informal networks, multi-generational abusive families and any other form of sexual abuse reported by victims and survivors.
In acting we seek the truth. We investigate to discover the truth. The truth, it has been well said, will set you free.
