Villager complains of mystery foul burning smell

What’s that smell? A resident in a village near Lincoln has complained about a mysterious foul burning smell.

Lia Ginno told The Lincolnite that for several days there has been a ‘bonfire’ smell around Norton Disney.

She said it was so bad on Tuesday afternoon that she had to shut the windows as “it takes your breath away”.

Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue and Lincolnshire Police both said they haven’t had any reports of this nature.

It is unclear whether it is from waste burning on a site, from nearby works or another separate source, but it is certainly causing frustration in the village.
