Dear Sir, I was wondering if you could put something in the Newton News regarding the awful smell from the bio gas plant? I live in the Simpasture area of the town and over the last year the smell from this plant is so bad. I can’t open my windows. It is particularly bad on a morning, but is there most days. A friend of mine smelt it in Darlington, when the wind is in that direction. I reported this to the Environmental Agency, 3 months ago, who are looking into it, but so far nothing has been done. I also emailed our MP, Phil Wilson, who didn’t bother replying to me. Maybe if more Aycliffe residents get in touch with the Environment Agency and complain something might get done? It is very unpleasant living with the stench every time you go outside or open your windows. Name and address supplied
