Residents in two areas of Melbourne are having to put up with a foul odour that's causing them to feel physically ill.

Thousands of residents in Brookland Greens and Botanic Ridge estates in Cranbourne, in the city's south-east, are being forced to live each day unable to go outside their homes without feeling sick. 

However, Victoria's Environment Protection Authority is encouraging these people to go and see their GP if they have concerns about their health.
