Poulton residents kick up a stink over 'Seacombe smell'



POULTON residents are kicking up a stink about a foul smell that has repeatedly plagued the area over the last year, lasting up to several days.

The issue was raised last week at a residents meeting attended by Seacombe Councillor Adrian Jones.

Accusations have been made towards the Tate and Lyle storage facility on Poulton Bridge Road, which has seen increased activity over the last 12 months.

Though close to the dry docks, Bidston landfill and abandoned Mobil Oil facility, the smell is reportedly strongest around the ‘Tate Triangle’, the area containing a facility used to store vegetable and lubricating oil.

Locals liken the stench to rotting fish and soured milk. “It’s like being ambushed,” said one. “If we have washing on the line the smell gets into it before we can bring it inside.”

Cllr Jones says the area records above average rates of asthma and chest conditions.

“Residents have commented on chesty coughs, retching and constant sore throats. Mothers close doors and windows to protect their children,” he said Householder Pauline Platt, of Balfour Road, has lived in the area her entire life. “I’m used to industrial smells from the port and industrial area - there used to be a piggery on Clayton Lane - but those smells were bearable. This is not and people have had enough.”

Another resident in nearby Chamberlain Street told the Globe: “My lads won’t play out because of the smell. Normally there are hundreds of kids running around in summer but now the streets are empty.”

ate and Lyle said that the miasma was not poisonous and council officers have not acted as the stink is not yet illegal.

An environmental health spokesman said: “The council have been made aware of the smell around the Poulton/ Seacombe area of Wallasey and are doing all we can to locate its source.”

But Cllr Jones said: “As recently as last February, when I raised it with our professional officers, they were given assurances by Tate & Lyle that the company would be in touch with us to discuss it.

“But they haven’t and now there’s been another episode of the revolting stench.

“I am extremely upset that Tate & Lyle have made no attempt to contact local residents or councillors and am insisting that they speak to residents in person.”

There's the answer to street crime involving the young scrotes... simply have a foul smell and they all stay in!

I am off to fart in a bottle and store it ready...

I know that smell, it was a bad smell. But it never really reached to the house i was living at. But every morning when i drove to feed my horse, it was a really strong sickly smell, it would come into the car but i never wanted to open the windows as it would just smell more!

I would complain too!!! smile

The smell is from the old oil storage tanks that have/are being cut up. Stored in there as crude, smell onsite is bad! Been doing breakdowms on there, the oil contamination is unbeleivable!!

I used to have Cereal Partners, the Doughnut factory and Lever Brother's soapy smell wafting over my house, it was really nice on a still night.

We get a nice strong smell of Cadbury here in Moreton, though its not often nowadays. Used to love going to school when I was in primary school, each morning you could smell the chocolate dead strong mmmmmmmm.

Even better because my mum worked at Cadbury for a long time and used to bring home massive boxes of choccy biscuits from the Cadbury shop! This was in the innocent days before the government started telling everyone to avoid chocolate and fatty foods and become rabbits of course, a time when we were allowed to eat what we wanted haha!

Also a time when Cadbury in Moreton was actually still Cadbury and not split into Premier Foods, Manor Bakeries or Rank Hovis. They don't make much chocolate there nowadays!

I miss them times!
