We got reports last night April 7 of a foul smell in the Ashton on Mersey area of Sale and other parts of Trafford.
We have found the source of the problem of the stench last night, so foul people could not go out and was reporting feeling sick.
United Utilities spokesman said:”I was looking to see if there was any sewage flooding or anything reported in the Sale area and I can’t see anything. Which to me indicates that it is the smell from Davyhulme you can smell.
“We have absolutely no control of the odour, we do try and keep it to a minimum but as you can imagine it is sometimes very difficult.”
A report about the odour which reached many parts of Trafford last night has now been logged.
