    The noise and vibration from mosmorran is worrying, but it will be more of the same, ( the plant is safe ) ( we have it under control ) !!!! ( the plant is not to old ). ( Your health is not in jeopardy ). We have to live here, but the amount of flaring seems to go up each year, lasts longer, and is louder. WHY ? ?

    In total agreement with E. McKenna! The noise levels are terrible, we shouldn’t have to be subjected to this level of noise and potential pollution over and over again. The usual apology telling us its nothing more than an inconvenience is an insult and undermines the true impact we endure every time we experience this level of flaring. It should be totally unacceptable to treat a community in this way! They are truly Neighbours from HELL!!!
