/ Can you smell gas?
Any other Sussex/Kent residents getting the same?
I can't smell it from here.
Good job it wasn't two days ago... We had a gas leak in the supply into our house... It reached 'low range explosive', before we were cut off and capped... All fixed now...
"Kent Fire and Rescue Service has advised residents to keep doors and windows closed to minimise the smell inside homes."
Sound, sobering advice I hope everyone heeds.
It may not have been too bad a leak, because mercaptans are the smelliest substances known to man. Methanethiol gives the rotten cabbage smell in sh1t, and ethanethiol is the smelliest of them all, according to the Guinness Book of Records.
Not closed that window yet?
Maybe itīs your customers that smell?
Just noticed this international incident and I feel I have to apologise. I knew the pills I've been taking were wreaking havoc on my guts but reaching England is an all time record. Normally being East of Paris the prevailing winds take the odours harmless off across the desolate plains of N E France, where they are barely noticed amongst the ambient smells, but unusually a S E wind has been blowing for two days, hence complaints in Paris, all down the Seine valley and now, apparently, across the Channel.
I can only apologise and reassure you that the whiff is not toxic in any way.
Smelt it here in Hastings this morning - those bloody Normans have been sending sh*t over here since 1066!
Look out! When the French think that the whole of the south of England is unconscious they'll invade and occupy Hastings again.
No big loss...
The mercaptan leak is just a cover story. It's just that the French smell and the wind's in the wrong direction...
as they are no doubt saying....
I thought it was our dog.
We used to get French tv in Dorset when atmospheric conditions were 'wrong'; now my sister reckons the gas smell she and the neighbours got this afternoon in Dorchester was French as well!
