Mystery pong hangs over large parts of Carlisle

A nasty niff descended over Carlisle – and no-one is entirely sure what caused it.
Have your say
An aroma by definition is akin to nice smell of freshly roasted coffee beans such has undertaken for decades by Watts in Carlisle's Bank street. I've visited Wigton recently after an absence of many decades when I went on my rounds to the many Cumbrian Telephone Exchanges and the town which once had a most terrible horrid pong which by definition is not a pleasant aroma and honestly Wigton is a pleasant market town well worth a visit. Freshness of air is certainly confined to the Lakes towns, villages and hamlets, besides charming vicinities such as Crosby Ravonsworth. Why is'nt their not a smellograph to compare Cumbrian air quality (or Pong stats) in Carlisle and other locations... of what we breathe ?
Am sure that the residents of Distington and Wigton will sympathise with you, they have an aroma quite regularly.
The worst nauseating smell I've ever encountered is at a Liverpool based Medical Laboratory where eggs were used to create flu vaccines... Staff working all day in such an environment. Cars and homes entrenched in such a smell and garment items you would't want to buy recycled, or bid for. This being far, far worse than fresh slurry and nose tingling chicken/pig farms.In today's world some folks burn recyclable toxic plastic's under cover of dark nightime's which is'nt very pleasant when wanting to leave doors and windows open for fresh cool clean air for those with breathing difficulties of young and old.. Warnings seem overdue for this ....
