CCTV shows moment woman defecates outside shop in The Old High Street, Folkestone

CCTV footage has captured the moment a woman stopped to poo on a pavement in Folkestone.

Colin White from independent clothing business The Quarter Masters arrived at work yesterday morning to see the faeces outside his shop in the old high street.

Initially he thought it might be from a large dog and took it upon himself to clean up as much as he could before neighbours and shop staff teamed up to wash it away with bleach and water.

However, after checking his CCTV he was shocked by what he found.

Mr White said: "We are very vigilant in The Old High Street and want to keep it looking nice because we're proud of it here.

"It was a particularly large deposit which seemed weird so my suspicions were aroused from the get go.

"I always keep poo bags in the shop so I triple-bagged it and I picked up what I could because someone had trodden in it.

"I thought it would be great if we could figure out whose dog did it so I looked at my CCTV.

"When I saw what happened, it was a bizarre and amazing thing to witness.

"It turns out it happened about 10pm last night so it wasn't even that late.

"It was about one metre away from a bin too.

"It was a harrowing start to the morning. I'm glad it didn't happen last week as it was half term and it was very busy and it would have been a nightmare."
