If we looked out our back yard we could see the corner of the factory it was so close. Every time the sewerage at Beckton was let out, the smell just came over Thames View. And, I think someone once described it as chewable, it was so awful, it really was. You had to walk along with a handkerchief over your mouth it got so bad at times.
