SCHOOL children from the Lantern Primary School in Ely are helping the district council to highlight the problems of noise pollution.

East Cambridgeshire District Council sent environmental health officers visited the school and talked to children about why noise can be good or bad, how noise can affect people and what everyone can do to make a difference.

The pupils then took part in a competition to draw posters which the district council can then use in future campaigns to highlight noise awareness.

Vinnie Jathoul, technical officer within the environmental services at East Cambridgeshire District Council said: "It was really interesting to hear the views of the children on the issues of noise. From things like loud music, barking dogs and even bird song, all the children had something to say about what makes noise good or bad.
