You'd have to wonder what could be behind such a large leak that is affecting people up to 4KM inland, across a wide area too. It's hardly some chlorine gas canister that got dropped into the sea many years ago?

The UK had (and used) chlorine gas chemical weapons during WW1.
Possibly the gas cloud is from an old chemical weapons dump at sea?

Despite what they say in some of the news articles there are some pretty smelly chemical factories just over the channel there. I remember driving to Calais from Germany back in the 80's when there was no complete motorway connection past Belgium. There was an industrial area called "La Grand Synthe" or something like that and we had to make sure to close the air vents in the car before driving through it.
