The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) says it has arrived at a theory regarding the mysterious odour in the vicinity of the Spanish Town and Hagley Park roads in St Andrew, yesterday.




Residents complained that they experienced headaches, sore throat, nausea, itching skin, burning eyes and in some cases coughing as a result of the odour.



NEPA’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Knight said the agency did some pointed tracking which has led it to what he describes as a strong hypothesis.



Knight says the next step is for him to brief the Environment and climate change minister, Robert Pickersgill on his findings.



He says once this is done, he is hoping to make his conclusions public within 24 hours.
