Wood Smoke Stories

Smoked out with COPD in Hampshire

I have COPD. The neighbours have just installed a wood burner. The smell in our house is now horrendous. Some sample PM2.5 levels in the house: living room 70.7, bedroom two 100.2 and bedroom three is 142.5.

I have been in touch with the council; apparently it is compliant. I have tried talking to the neighbours, but as it is compliant and they are burning the correct fuel they believe they have no further responsibilities to us.

We had one good week last week, but now it is back to normal. The living room and the back bedrooms stink of smoke. The video shows the monitor outside in the “fresh” air.

Help, what can we do?
