Recommended Posts

And again...very thick grey smoke spreading across the valley. Looks pretty unpleasant.

I don't think it is the Ski Village this time. It absolutely stinks though, whatever it is (am sat in office here on Neepsend Lane)

It is halfway down the slopes - maybe tyres dumped there? I saw a figure in a fluorescent orange jacket just as it started.

 

Now thick black smoke as well. It must be a driving hazard as well as a breathing hazard.

Ah, we can't see clearly where it is from here. It smells horrible, even with the doors and windows closed :(

I can now smell it from a mile away indoors. Perhaps burning plastic? You might want to phone the Fire Brigade about evacuation advice if it is really bad where you are - it appears to be getting worse.

A colleague has rung them, they've already got a fire engine there, but they are struggling for access.

It would seem an odd place to dump tyres as it's well up from the village between what were the ski runs - doubt if you could get a vehicle up there.

 

Smoke doesn't seem as bad now as it was 5 minutes ago.

I can see the smoke from Meersbrook park. It's about 50m from the top.

Another big eruption of smoke - maybe a volcanic vent?

Looks to be under where the ski lift used to go up - maybe oil etc in an old engine that powered the ski lift?
