Smell warfare has been launched in Wisbech where residents are keeping odour diaries in a bid to track down where a mystery pong is coming from.
Some householders have said the smell is so bad that they want to sell up and move.
Councillor Steve Tierney said that at least 15 couples are now logging the odour in a bid to track down the culprit.
“People are saying it absolutely stinks,” he said.
“I have had at least 30 reports from people who commented, a lot of them during my election campaign around the Medworth ward.”
