People in Tipp Town could be suffering toxic poisoning due to ongoing traffic jams.

Local Councillor Denis Leahy says the number of vehicles passing through the town is a cause for serious concern.

At this month’s meeting of Tipp County Council, the local authority agreed to request that the Environmental Protection Agency conduct tests to establish if the levels of pollutants are safe.

Councillor Leahy claims says there is only one solution.
