MP kicking up a stink over tip odour

AN MP HAS taken up the fight to clear the air around Winterton, Roxby and Burton-Upon-Stather of the stench of rotting rubbish.
The smells given off by the landfill site off the A1077, close to Roxby, led the Environment Agency to call a meeting with members of the public two weeks ago.
Now MP Ian Cawsey is urging his constituents to fill out a questionnaire about the effects of living with the odour.
The quiz, which is posted on his official website, asks participants how the issue affects them, whether they have filed a complaint and to describe the smell.
Mr Cawsey said: "I attended the public meeting with the Environment Agency to discuss the foul smells coming from the Roxby Landfill site."
"Action is being taken to get the operator of the site, Biffa, to get rid of these smells, but the agency requires as much local information as possible.
"Anyone who has been affected really should complete the online questionnaire."
Richard Brown (25), from Earlsgate, Winterton said: "Living where I do, right at the top of Winterton, we are closest to the tip so get the brunt of the whiffs – I actually think it's been a little better in the last week, but there's still a long way to go until it feels like we have clean air round here."
