I wasn't sure where to post this and didn't want to start a new thread so I guess this one is close enough;

I live on the Sussex coast, miles away from where it started, and the smell was so strong here that we called the gas board thinking we had a major leak. I hate to think what it was like for people actually living near the plant. :o

A road tunnel in Norway has been closed - by a lorry-load of burning cheese.

About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week.

Actually burning it is probably the best thing to do with Brunost, I certainly don't recommend eating it
