Major UK methane greenhouse gas leak spotted from space

Emily Dowd, PhD researcher at the School of Earth and Environment and the National Centre for Earth Observation, University of Leeds, had been using satellite imagery to assess methane leaks from landfill sites. But she noticed on the images the distinct marker of a methane leak some miles away, coming from a gas pipeline owned by Wales and West Utilities.
