If you’re looking for solicitors in Flempton you’re going to be out of luck. The village is too small. Most commercial enterprises are be found in nearby Bury St Edmunds, but anyone who has a personal injury claim to launch usually finds an injury claim solicitor on the web. They prefer it to travelling to town, dealing with the ever increasing amount of traffic on the roads, and then trying to find somewhere to park. It’s much easier to let your mouse do the walking.

Silo filler’s disease
Suffolk is a rural county and there’s not much in the way of industry, especially in small villages like Flempton; it’s mostly farm land, and farmers have their work cut out for them. Farming is one of the most dangerous occupations because of the manual work that is involved, and the fact that farmers have to work with some very dangerous equipment.
But there are other dangers too; perhaps not as prevalent in terms of the number of accidents that are recorded each year; but certainly in terms of the severity of the injury. In fact, the injury we’re about to discuss results in up to 5 fatalities per year. It’s something called silo filler’s disease.
What is silage?
Dairy farmers create silage for feeding their cattle throughout the winter. It’s created by storing grass in silos which is then allowed to ferment. Silo filler’s disease is caused by the inhalation of Nitrogen Dioxide (NOx), which forms after about 10 days of the fermentation process beginning. If an unwary farmer of farm worker enters a silo unaware of the danger, it can prove fatal.
The danger and symptoms of silo filler’s disease
With minimal exposure resulting symptoms are usually quite mild and self healing. But with more serious exposure is can cause sudden death by asphyxiation, or pulmonary oedema, or in some instances; after several weeks from bronchiolitis obliterans.
