Investigation into landfill smell

The Environment Agency has stepped in to help deal with the smell coming from one North Wales' landfill sites.

They're working with the Waste Recycling Group whp own the tip at Llanddulas in Conwy after complaints from local people.

So how bad is the smell? 

One pub owner there told us:

"It's terrible here.

"With the heat at this time of year with the dump there, the inside of the pub just gets filled with flies."

Nicholas Blake, Regional Business Manager for Waste Recycling Group said:

"We continue to work closely with the Environment Agency and are continuously looking at ways to improve our operations with additional environmental works already proposed in September. 

"We are committed to ensuring we maintain the highest standards in terms of the management of the Llanddulas Landfill site and aim to minimise inconvenience for local residents wherever possible."
