Letter: Burger breezes

"SUMMER IN the suburbs, the smell of hot tarmac and fresh lawn clippings" - if only these were the smells ("A pram's eye view of Britain", Review, 13 June). Here in west Cambridge where McDonald's has taken over our local pub (no planning permission required), the smell of cooking burgers invades our "security, calm and order". Be warned, all you who live in pleasant surroundings on the edge of towns, McDonald's is fast moving in and the aroma it brings is, believe me, the ruination of the suburbs.
