Police hunting for man filmed pooing on wall after mysterious apology note found

A man filmed pooing on a city-centre wall and apparently came back to daub an apology in brown pen is being sought.

Council environmental officers want to speak to him after the disgusting act was caught on camera at 7am.

It shows a man wearing a purple shirt and a beige hat walking along the pavement in front of a row of houses in a garden.

He puts a can down on the floor before dropping his trousers in Frederick Gardens in Brighton, East Sussex.

The act was carried out opposite people’s homes and reported that morning on September 15.

But resident Chris Hayes said the mess was not cleaned up until later that week.

Now graffiti saying "the s*****r was not homeless" appeared on the wall in Frederick Gardens on Monday night.

It adds: "Sorry though."

Some locals suggested that the incident may have been linked to Crohn’s disease, which is a debilitating and inflammatory bowel disease.

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman said: "We have received details of someone we would like to speak to about this incident and our investigation is ongoing.

"We are aware that there are certain debilitating medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease and colitis that can underpin instances such as this."

He went on: "We very much want to make sure we are not discriminating against people suffering from what are sometimes known as invisible disabilities.

"But we would always look to take appropriate enforcement action against clear cases of antisocial behaviour."

Spitting, urinating or defecating in public are all punishable by a £75 on-the-spot fine.

Last year the council expanded its fining scheme, which was previously reserved for litter-bugs, graffiti and dog mess.
