Ryall binman defecation resident gets compensation

Related Stories

A man has received £1,000 compensation after a binman defecated on his driveway.

It happened at a property in Ryall, Worcestershire, in January.

The resident, who did not want to be named, complained because before the man defecated on his drive there had been two previous incidents of binmen urinating in the same spot.

Malvern Hills District Council, which paid out the money, has already disciplined the binman.

The authority said the issue of a lack of toilet facilities for staff who are on the road all day was "a sensitive one, particularly in rural areas".

A spokesman said the council was reviewing current practices to see if any improvements could be made.

He said the authority accepted full responsibility and "took immediate action by sending out an operative to make sure the area was cleaned and sanitised".
