IT MAY be the first time in history that the Auld ­Alliance between Scotland and France has benefited the English.

Scottish scientists have helped the English fend off a foul-smelling ­invasion after a stench of rotten eggs, sweat and ­garlic wafted over the ­English Channel from a chemical plant in Rouen which sprung a leak a week ago.

Scotmas, a chemical company based in Kelso, Roxburghshire, has sent four tonnes of a solution over to France to kill off the smell and turn England into a green and pleasant land once again.
