Breaking News on Friday

Here is an article published today in the UK news:

Isle-whiff invades England

A vile stench that has invaded southern England has been blamed on industrial and farming smells from the Isle of Wight.

Dubbed "Isle-whiff" by the Met Office, the source of the odour is currently being probed.

Sarah Holland from the Met Office said it has received many calls from members of the public.

The smell has been detected as far west as Devon.

"Basically, over the last few days, we've had fresh, strong winds from a southerly direction," said Miss Holland.

Miss Holland added that while members of Met Office staff were attempting to trace the exact source of the "atmospheric aroma", the likely explanation was most likely agricultural or industrial works on the Island.

"Normally, our winds are westerly, coming off the Atlantic Ocean, which bring little or no pollution with them."

Some of the most pungent odours have been reported in the Ryde, Isle of Wight area, with other reports of a stench in Portsmouth.

One Isle of Wight resident told MSN News today she noticed the stench as soon as she stepped out the door this morning.

"It was horrible," she said of the air. "This nasty stench just hit me."

Southern Water say the smell is not related to water or sewage works.
