'Sacone - Pageant Day'

The animal carcasse incinerator on Montrose Road run by Sacone Ltd was notorious for odours of rotting and burnt flesh.
Many civic days were spoiled by odours drifting over the town, people felt sick, couldn't leave windows open and there were concerns for health. I presented a public petition to the Scottish Parliament about it in 2006.
