Word of the probe came after the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) responded to reports of a persistent stench at the corner of the two districts.

Carl “Alff” Padmore, SSA public relations officer, said they received a report from supervisor for the Bridgetown area, Sonia Outram, about the unbearable smell that was also affecting a nearby food stall and hair salon.
