Disgust as road worker is caught ‘urinating’ in Scunthorpe family’s DRIVEWAY as firm apologises, says it will discipline worker and offers to JET WASH the area clean
- Resident on ‘quiet’ Scunthorpe street recorded the EC Surfacing Ltd employee
- Workman can be seen emerging behind his van appearing to do up his trousers
- Shocked neighbours gave their views on the clip which has been shared online
Residents on a ‘quiet street’ have been left disgusted by a contracted road worker who was spotted urinating on a customer’s driveway.
An eagle-eyed neighbour on the residential street in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, recorded the incident on his mobile phone after he saw the worker, from EC Surfacing Ltd, relieving himself on Thursday 10 March at 1.10pm.
The company has since apologised to both residents and the council for the action of the worker, who they intend to discipline, and they will clean the area with a jet wash.
In the video, as his colleagues are working in a nearby street, the workman can be seen emerging from behind the van appearing to do up his trousers.
The van later moves off to reveal a puddle of urine streaming down the driveway.
But shocked residents gave their views on the clip which has been circulating on social media.
Louise Andrew, 43, said: ‘I’m horrified by what this man has done. We live on a quiet street and I couldn’t believe someone could do this.
‘Has he not been potty trained to use a toilet like everyone else? It’s disgusting that he would do that in the first place.’
Rajidapa Singh, 52, said: ‘This is just dirty. Does this man have any shame?
‘I wouldn’t urinate in public because I was brought up with manners and values. Do they not have portable toilets to use?’

However, Connor Abbett, 29, said: ‘Give the guy a break. He must have been desperate to have a wee so that’s where he did his business.
‘Those guys have to work long hours and I can’t see any toilets available from that video. I’ve been there myself when I’ve needed to go so badly that I might burst and gone behind a tree.
‘Maybe I agree that he shouldn’t have done it by someone’s garage. I think the best bit is when you can see the mark where he’s had a wee on the floor after the tipper leaves. No doubting he’s done what he did.’
