A ship caused a stench with some fearing the whiff was a gas leak.
Emergency services said it received a number of calls at about 3pm today after a strange smell drifted throughout Chichester.
Some feared it was a gas cloud with reports that homes were being evacuated.
Southern Gas and Electric said it was sending an engineer out to investigate the problem.
But West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said the smell had originated from a ship in the Channel that vented its storage tanks.
