dung it? Residents kick up a stink after manure accident
in part of Burnham-On-Sea kicked up a stink on Thursday (February
24th) after several tonnes of manure was accidentally spilt across
along a busy road junction.
Somerset County Council's highways team was called to the junction
of Berrow Road and Allandale Road to clear away a passing farm
vehicle lost part of its load.
Greene from the council's highways team told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We got a call at 2pm requesting an immediate clear-up."
cleared the pavement to enable pedestrian access and suggested
a road sweeper was brought in to complete the job."
added: "It's unclear how the mess got there in the first
question on local residents' minds was 'who dung it?'
resident, who asked not to be named, said: "There was a terrible
smell throughout the day and the junction into Rectory Road was
very slippery, making it quite dangerous for motorists. Fortunately,
the council acted very quickly to clear up the mess."
