Problem: Mullaghglass landfill site in west Belfast

Residents in west Belfast say they've had enough of a foul smell which has been plaguing them for months.

The smell was traced to the Mullaghglass landfill site, which is operated by Alpha Resource Management, and residents in the Colin, Hannahstown and Glen Road areas were told last October that the problem would be sorted.

But those living near the site are still suffering the ill-effects and according to mum-of-three Mairead Connolly, who lives in Mount Eagles, the stench is now worse than ever.
