BUS services between Bristol and Chipping Sodbury are going to part of £2.2 million to cut air pollution but what about noise pollution, which is also bad for people's health?

The 47 bus travels through south Yate, along narrow roads throughout the estate every half hour for approximately 18 hours every day.

They are the noisiest vehicles on the road.

Even with double glazed windows, which are closed, they still wake people up in the early mornings.

It was absolute bliss when the buses stopped running for a whole day during the heavy snowfall.
