A Lancaster University report published yesterday finds that people living near busy roads are more likely to experience ill health, the Times reports (p9).

The paper says that the two year project involved 1,000 households in ten cities in northern England and Scotland. Answers about health were compared with measurements of the traffic outside the families' homes.

The symptoms most frequently reported were headaches and lack of energy but the survey also found coughs and breathing difficulties.

Government reports are expected soon on traffic and illness, the paper adds.
