In London on Friday 18th April there was (so I'm told) a very bad smell. I didn't experience this first hand as I didn't go outside much on Friday, but a friend told me of her experience of a bad odour walking down Holborn. She attributed to a fast-food restaurant but it turns out that there was a more meteorological explanation (or so they would have us believe). The malodorous experience was apparently caused by air being blown in from Eastern Europe.

I wonder if this was also the cause of the very strong smell of excrement which lingered over Littleheath in Charlton a few weeks ago?!
