The San Fernando City Corporation (SFCC) says it has received several reports of a gaseous odour permeating the inner city.

Upon investigation, the SFCC ascertained that The National Gas Company (NGC) is currently conducting an upgrade exercise at the Rushworth Street Gas Station and identified this location as the source of the stench. 

The NGC reportedly stated that pamphlets were distributed notifying the public of the nature of the exercise.

However, the company has since apologised after realising that the relevant departments of the SFCC were unaware of this undertaking.

"NGC gave the assurance that the exercise will be completed today, and have activated systems and units throughout the area to reduce the stench," the statement said.
