Public Shaming of the Day: Hoxton resident Harry Monk, fed up with “the constant stream” of late-night urinators relieving themselves below his Cranwood Court apartment, has taken matters into his own hands, filming an hour’s worth of pissed pissers and posting the footage to YouTube.
"I feel disgusted, angry, distressed, resigned that people are doing this underneath my home," Monk, who says he speaks for other residents, told the Hackney Gazette. “Most of the problems the local residents of Old Street are experience are caused by the clubs and pubs on the Islington side of the road,” Monk says. “Hackney Council say they have no control as they do not grant the licenses and Islington Council are not concerned as we are not residents in that borough.”
An Islington Council member told the paper he has asked the staff and local authorities “to do everything in our power to sort out this problem.”
