Mystery smell plagues UK as miles and miles of Britain smell like ‘poo and sick’

Brits are being plagued by a disgusting stench similar to “sick” and “poo” which has blanketed the Black Country.

The foul odour was detected in Birmingham, West Bromwich, Wolverhampton and Walsall yesterday evening, September 15.

It made a return this morning in the Tamworth area, Birmingham Live reports.

The cause has not yet been identified, with Sandwell Council now investigating.

@sharkoil tweeted: "Horrible poo smell all over Birmingham and Wolverhampton."

Joanne Tutton claimed: "Was really bad near Bentley Bridge yesterday. Could smell it when I was eating dinner in the pub as we were sat near the entrance. Thought someone had been sick in there."

Social media was filled with theories on the potential cause.

@xChrisP44x said: "Got a whiff of that yesterday afternoon in the garden. As we have lots of cats in the area I thought it may have been one of them. Couldn’t find any evidence though. Horrible smell."

@liner213 commented: "I live near Sandwell Valley and sometimes there is a smell from the farms spraying manure. Thought that was what it was."

@maxhatton posted: "Farmers have been spraying manure over their fields. It was warm yesterday with the winds blowing the smell and it lingered over the city. It’s not aliens, not a chemical attack, not coronavirus. Just normal s**t."

Daily Star Online has approached Birmingham City council and the Environment Agency for comment.

Back in August, a mum of three left Pontins holiday camp with her children after what she claims was the "absolutely disgusting" state of the rooms she was offered.

Claudia Woods, 24, from Kirkby had booked a four-night stay starting August 3, along with her three young children and a friend at Pontins Prestatyn.

After they arrived, they waited two hours in a queue before being given the keys to a chalet which, when they opened the door, Claudia said left them feeling physically sick.
