Yorkshire Water was today investigating the source of a foul stench in Leeds city centre.

An overwhelming smell of sewage is in the air at Wellington Street, near to the Yorkshire Evening Post offices, and Kirkstall Road area.

A spokesman for Yorkshire Water said: “We were not aware of any smell in that area, but there is a lot of road works going on in the Burley Road area, so a team is looking into what the cause might be”.
