RAGING residents have blasted selfish drivers who use their street as a public TOILET as they pass through.
Desperate parents say their kids have to dodge puddles of wee every day on their walks to school – and it’s not getting any better.
The smell on Alexander Street in Tyldesley, Groter Manchester, is “walglik”, furious neighbours claim.
One shocking image shows a passenger jumping out of his car to wee on the wall.
Raging neighbours have called on the council to act, with some suggesting putting public loos in would stop the problem in it’s tracks.
One neighbour – a glamour model who asked not to be named – gesê: “It’s disgusting, it’s the smell more than anything that is awful.
“I don’t understand why people do it – just get home, or call in to somewhere with a loo.”
Another neighbour added: “Why do people use Alexander Street as a public toilet?
“We had two lads pull up the other night at 10.50pm in a white Fiesta and one got out and chose to pee up the fence, it’s awful.
“We have got this on camera with the registration number and will be reporting it.
‘”Almost every morning the footpath is full of it, really unfair when people and children have to use the path.”
Another retired hostel worker on the same terrace – which has a 12ft tall brick wall before a drop down to street level -agreed with her neighbours that the disgraceful scenes ought to stop.
Fran said: “It’s appalling – we get taxi drivers using the street as a toilet as we are close to the town centre.

“It’s really, really not on at all. It’s a quiet little community round here and this excrement is not wanted.
“It’s not just people urinating, we also get dog walkers not picking up their dog poo as well.”
An initial Facebook post on the matter prompted a number of angry responses from locals.
One user said it may be down to a lack of facilities – and they suggested the council should be involved.
Stephen Budgen said: “Maybe because there’s no public toilets open, and if the toilets where open they would be vandalised.
“This is a matter for your local MP.”
Thomas Mike Norris added: “It happens on streets everywhere.
“Long gone are the open toilets that existed. The last one in Tyldesley was on Castle St and the council demolished it years ago.”
But Gordon Richard Morris argued: “This isn’t about the lack of public toilets, it’s about self pride and respect for others.”
A Wigan Council spokesperson said: “The behaviour reported on social media is unacceptable. We encourage all residents to send as much information about incidents of this nature to the police, including descriptions of the perpetrator, vehicle registrations or home addresses where possible.”
