Staff at a chemicals factory in north-western France are working to stop a gas leak that has spread a foul smell to Paris and south-east England.

French Ecology Minister Delphine Batho said there was no health risk after she visited the factory in the northern city of Rouen in Normandy.

Thousands of people, from as far away as Paris and London, have complained of nausea and headaches.

I saw in our local paper something about "French Stench hits County", and I thought, well, that doesn't seem very fair. That's an old sterotype that is unworthy of modern journalism. Now I see what it's about.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

This morning, my dogs enjoyed extra 'choccy-treats' because I felt so guilty about shouting at them yesterday for being smelly-a***d mongrels! (And all the time it was the French letting us know exactly how they feel about us - again!)

Why doesn't it?  A French stench DID hit Britain.

No, I went on to say, That's an old stereotype that is unworthy of modern journalism. Now I see what it's about, referring to the old stereotype about the French as being generally unwashed and fond of eating Garlic and onions. Honestly, sometimes I think I have to explain everything.

France already run own our trains and electricity, hope they do not try and charge us for having the use of their gas too?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
