Foul Smelling Fumes Cause an Evacuation at Charles III College and other Monaco news

Foul Smelling Fumes Cause an Evacuation Scare at Charles III College


It was quite a scare. Resulting from some abnormal chemical reaction in the pool technical room involving a chlorine-like smell, the odour could be detected in some classrooms. Even though the toxicity levels were low the intrusion of what appeared to be a small amount of a foul smelling chlorine-related gas on Wednesday into the classrooms of Charles III school caused an  understandable emotional stir and anxiety as much as it did health irritations that required treatment at CPHG for ultimately 10 out of 56 persons, mainly students screened by firemen of the emergency services who swiftly responded.

With the Historic Monte Carlo Rally about to come to an exciting conclusion all eyes will start looking towards the Monaco Grand Prix and whether Charles Leclerc can join Louis Chiron in winning his home Grand Prix. Emulating Chiron’s achievements is not at all easy as he also won the Monte Carlo Rally. 

And young Charles Leclerc has quite a few years to go before he could even think of matching Chiron’s late-career racing records. Chiron is still the oldest driver ever to have started a race in the Formula One World Championship, having taken 6th place in the 1955 Monaco Grand Prix when he was 55.

Monaco’s Stamp Office has not been slow to immerse itself in this season’s fervour by motor racing fans and bringing back memories of the likes of Louis Chiron, Jackie Stewart and Niki Lauda.
