The Ministry of Health is probing possible backyard slaughtering in the Kensington New Road/Fontabelle, St Michael area.

Word of the probe came after the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) responded to reports of a persistent stench at the corner of the two districts.

Carl “Alff” Padmore, SSA public relations officer, said they received a report from supervisor for the Bridgetown area, Sonia Outram, about the unbearable smell that was also affecting a nearby food stall and hair salon.

Preliminary investigations pointed to continued dumping of the entrails of sheep and fish offal, leading to the belief that animals were being slaughtered in the area. (AC)
