"A foul smell detected in parts of England and Wales is being blamed on easterly winds bringing farming or industrial smells across the Channel.

Labelled "Euro-whiff" by the Met Office, the source of the smell - alternately described as sulphur and manure - is under investigation."


Coming froma rural area, we just assumed that this was another farmer muck spreading in the fields, (though it is just a little late for that now) and get that 'country smell' quite often.
It wasn't until we turned on the news that we realised that there was more to it....

There's a map with the article.
It's been reported as far north as Durham and as far south as Pembry South Wales....
