Air pollution levels in and around Bergen are now so high that they pose a risk to public health, causing the council to call an emergency meeting this morning.

Despite the new lane reserved for buses and car-sharers, with parking on council-run lots within the toll road ring to be banned from tomorrow, additional solutions are being discussed to try and solve the problem. This could include making the current free bus service permanent, NTB writes.

Further parking restrictions will be discussed at a new meeting scheduled for Friday.
