Winds spread 'Euro-whiff' across

People across the UK were left sniffing the air in disgust on Friday after strong easterly winds spread unpleasant farming or industrial smells from the continent. The Met Office said it had received reports of the pong - dubbed Euro-whiff - from a wide area across south east England stretching from East Anglia to Dorset, and from the south coast up to Norfolk. Experts said the odour was believed to be from manure being used on agricultural land on the continent, perhaps mixed with industrial aromas from the Ruhr region in north west Germany.
