What a stink! Offensive odour wreaks havoc across Westhoughton
Westhoughton residents were forced to keep their windows shut today after the smell of POO spread across the town.
Residents caught a whiff of the foul smell right across the town from the centre and as far away as Daisy Hill.
It is believed a farmer has spread material from a sewerage farm on fields as a fertiliser.
This is what residents had to say:
Sign the petition: Control the use of sewerage slurry in residential areas
Following the terrible smell which has spread right across Bolton, we are calling for the banning of spreading sewerage sludge and slurry near to residential areas. Sign the petition and share with your friends.
