Hi folks,

I hope i have put this in the right forum, if not please could Mods move to correct place?

An enormous cloud of Mercaptan gas has escaped from a chemical plant situated in Rouen in the North of France yesterday causing a great part of the North of France and parts of Southern UK to be "contaminated" by this rather smelly and potentially dangerous in high doses gas :

See link : www.telegraph.co.uk...

The French interior minister yesterday said that there was no need to panic and apart from the unpleasant smell this gas had no effect on the publics health.

Didn't Mitterand also say that about the Chernobyl cloud and that it would stop at the French border?

Bit of info about Mercaptan :

www.mflohc.mb.ca...

To be pondered over!

Kindest respects

How Mercaptans Affect Health

If there is a leakage or a spill of mercaptans, workers may develop headaches and become nauseated and vomit. There may be coughing and irritation of the lungs and inflammation of the eyes, nose and throat.

If the concentration is very high, the worker may have difficulty breathing and may turn blue -medically described as "cyanosis". The worker may then lose consciousness and have generalized muscle spasms.


The french are gonna turn blue? Sac`re Blu!

Changing coulour and smelling of rotten cabbages... what a way to go huh?

Sacré bleu!

But, on a more serious note, this is actually quite worrying as the Gvt are not being very truthful about the whole thingt.

For info, they said that there was nothing to fear of but still postponed a football match 4 Km away from the chemical plant which was expected to have about 10 000 supporters attending!

Kindest respects

Hi Mods,

is it possible to delete this thread please.

I see that Rezlooper started off a thread on this subject already so don't wish to double.

Many thanks and respects

Whoops-a-daisy!

To be fair, the south of England was pretty malodorous already, as standard.

Like he would know...


Not very much is known about the dangers of mercaptans...

www.mflohc.mb.ca...

ETA: Maybe the French minister was talking about the health of British citizens instead of his own:


Experts at the Health Protection Agency’s Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards in Oxfordshire were scrambled to investigate.

But they established that the gas had dissipated so much in is journey from France that it was unlikely to cause harm.

www.telegraph.co.uk...

So the only reason people in Britain are safe is because "the gas had dissipated so much in is journey from France"?

It was only a matter of time before a cloud of Smug drifted over.
