Something that connects Edinburgh to Madrid

Body: 

This release from the residents group has gone to the media who follow this story,and to the councillors of the city.

A short while back Madrid, and it's Mayor, got a real hammering in the media, across Europe and the world when reports such as this one  highlighted that they were 'tackling' the problem of traffic created air pollution ......... by secretly taking 12 of the 27 receptors away from Roads and putting them in the City's parks and suburban gardens the problem instantly got miles better.

In Edinburgh we do things differently...but not all that differently.

As the release , and the map within it, shows our council haven't moved the receptors away from the pollution as Madrid did, they have moved the pollution away from the receptors.
