Last night Razzi and I were in Liverpool visiting a friend down by the river. It was quite a nice evening and as we looked back across the Mersey we could see the lights of Birkenhead shining brightly. Suddenly Razzi asked me what the clouds above the Wallasey and New Brighton area were. It was quite puzzling because they were too low to be clouds and yet didn’t seem quite right. Finally we realised that it was smoke rising from the ground. Just what was going on we were unsure of because the smoke was not rising from one isolated area as if a fire was burning but was climbing into the sky from multiple areas. What could be going on?
