Raising a stink over slurry

Eco-friendly aims: the Tynes Bay waste-to-energy incinerator (File photograph by Akil Simmons)

Dear Sir,

Having dropped off several items at the e-waste collection at the incinerator today (November 21, 2015), I decided to be ultra-e and run home along the Railway Trail.

Imagine my surprise when, having crossed Store Hill, I had to negotiate my way through hundreds of gallons of untreated animal slurry, still flowing.

Fortunately, I remained “uncowed”.

Yours raising a stink, ANDREW R. DOBLE, Hamilton Parish
