Air pollution

Last chance to have your say on pollution plans

BBC Newcastle

Public consultation over plans to charge drivers for entering parts of Tyneside ends this week.

Gateshead, Newcastle and North Tyneside councils have put forward several options to combat air pollution - including charging vehicles for going over the Tyne or going into certain zones.

Drivers could be charged up to £50 a day to enter the city and town centres.

The local authorities say they've been given until 2021 to meet government clean air targets.

Representatives from Newcastle and Gateshead councils will be taking calls with Alfie and Anna at Breakfast between 09:00 and 10:00 on Monday.

You can get in touch by calling 0800 234 65 65, text 81333 (start your message BBC), or find us on social media @bbcnewcastle.
