Dear Sir,

For several weeks Jávea has been shrouded in toxic, obnoxious smoke, due to the uncontrolled burning of garden waste.

Curiously, we are not allowed to smoke a cigarette on the terrace of a cafe.

Is this hypocrisy or what?

Yours sincerely,
A-M Keegan


Dear Mrs Keegan, as you point out in your headline, the smoke and bad smell across parts of Jávea and the surrounding area is being caused by the fire at the Ramblars waste transfer station.
