Local News Story Of The Day: Bradford Stinks – But Why?

by | 6th, August 2011

LOCAL news story of the week comes to use via the Bradford Telegraph & Argus where the mystery of a foul smell continues to befuddle.

A mystery surrounds the source of a bad smell which hit Bradford city centre yesterday morning. Workers began to turn up their noses at the rotten odour around 10am as the weather began to hot up.

Bradford stinks. But why?

A spokesman for the Council searches for clues and finding none passes the buck:

“We haven’t had any complaints from the public about bad smells but we smelt a strong whiff for about five minutes ourselves this morning. I went out at the time and walked around the town centre to the bottom of Leeds Road and then around midday walked around the vicinity of the courts but could not detect anything of note. We know Waddingtons is not operating today so we suspect it was a passing vehicle, over which we have no jurisdiction.”

A lorry bound for Lancashire, we’d wager…
