Why as soon as the sunshines and we have a blue sky do people start bonfires? Please can whoever it is down Manor Mount burn whatever waste they are burning after dark.

Hi Neo
I agree.
However with a name like yours you only need to add an (r) and you could have fiddled by FH burned.

is it legal to have indoor fires in London - I mean the ones in fireplaces with chimneys? Am I right in thinking that you have to burn smokeless fuel not wood?

I thought The Clean Air said that smokeless fuel only should be doubt someone can verify.

Not allowed to burn normal coal no doubt from times of the great smogs. But wood? (and that doesn't burn particularly dirty. have plenty of stuff on air quality. (But not that helpful). But see Acts.html

Having a neighbour who burnt his wet compost heap, (why?) that managed to cover the whole of UDB in a fugg, the council told me that their powers were limited, but they could write to the offender. Anyway if you have a fire, make sure it is dry and following a nice sunny day (ie at night) with plenty of atmospheric turbulence so with a hot flame the smoke should be well above ground height. Good manners to check whether the neighbours washing is not on the line first.
