New speed cameras have been installed on the M4 to tackle air pollution - specifically to reduce nitrogen dioxide levels.

50mph limits were originally trialled in December 2018 on the M4 near Port Talbot, Wales - the limit is now permanent.

Cameras have already been activated and are located on the M4 near Port Talbot, the A470 at Upper Boat, the A483 in Wrexham and A494 in Deeside.

A spokesman for the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD), said: "Speed cameras would not be necessary if speed limits weren't set at an inappropriately low 50mph. The air pollution excuse is simply unfounded scare-mongering given that a report by DEFRA shows nitrogen dioxide emissions have fallen by 72% and particulates (PM2.5) by 79% since 1970."

He added: "Longer journey times and increased congestion as a result of these measures won't reduce vehicle emissions."
