For some time now we have all had to tolerate a smell most foul, (or should that be Fowl?) depending which way the wind is blowing.
The Environment Agency are aware of the issue and are now diligently monitoring it. They have supplied a hotline number for people to ring. Should you smell a nasty niff in the air, please ring the free phone number: 0800 80 70 60. If you don’t want to give your name, you can state that you wish to remain anonymous.
The hotline support team will ask you your postcode and various questions including:
Where do you think the smell is coming from?
How would you rate the smell on a scale of 1 – 6?
How would you describe the smell?
What is the weather like (sunny, cloudy, overcast, still, breeze, windy)?
Have you had to close your windows?
How far are you from the source of the smell?
The hotline support team will then offer to give you a call log reference number. We would be very grateful if you could note it down and post it back on this page, so we can keep a log. Don’t worry the Environment Agency will never give out anyone’s names or personal information.
Please kindly pass the Environment Agency hotline number to friends and neighbours, who may not have internet access, or be aware that the situation is diligently being monitored by a professional body who can effect change.
