A strong smelling gas cloud has filled the air in Dorset, after blowing across the channel from France.

Dozens of concerned residents have been phoning the emergency services worried over fears of a major gas leak.

Dorset Police and the Environment Agency are reassuring people the smell which is likened to "rotten eggs", has come from a factory leak in North Western France and is harmless, posing no health risk.

The stench is thought to have been caught in strong easterly winds.
