Behaviour that is worse than dogs
PEDESTRIANS are fed up avoiding dog faeces in and around Oban – but one Combie Street resident was horrified to find his close being used as a public toilet.
The resident is often woken on Friday and Saturday nights between midnight and 2am by revellers in the alley between the Lochavulin pub and MSP Michael Russell’s constituency office.
But after a weekday disturbance at 1.30am on Wednesday May 8, he discovered used toilet paper littering the close and – worst of all – human excrement in the corner.
‘They’ve been urinat- ing in the past but this is the first time there’s been this,’ he said. ‘It’s very similar to the dog situation, except these have two legs.
‘It surprises me there is this behaviour in Oban. I think they should get back to the gutter and clean it up.
‘It’s a health and safety issue: there are threeand four-year- old kids who live in this block. One neighbour has moved out to somewhere quieter.’
The incident was reported to the police, and anyone with any information can call Police Scotland on 101.
