A woman in Kent says her CCTV captured the disgusting moment a salesman had a poo right outside her house, before making a quick exit.
Jennifer Chibuzo says she was shocked when she went out to her bins and spotted a 'fresh lump of faeces' on the floor next to a filthy leaflet, presumably used a makeshift bog roll. She said she knew it wasn't from an animal as soon as she saw it, because it was 'too big'. Lovely.
She watched through her CCTV recordings and it was then she saw a man walk along past the side of her house and then reappear a few minutes later.

Chibuzo, who lives in Ebbsfleet, then asked a few of her neighbours to see if they had spotted anyone or anything suspicious - it was then she was told that a salesman from security alarm company Verisure had been out in the area.
She rang the company to complain about the incident and was given an apology and a promise that the mess would be cleared up.
Speaking to the Sun, she said: "I didn't want to have to meet the person who did that face to face. I felt a bit bad for them, as it's embarrassing.
"I was just so angry. I feel disgusted and violated that someone would do that; it was right by my living room.
"I knew it wasn't animal poo as it was so big.
"It's a bit ironic that someone trying to sell security equipment would go and do something like that."
Verisure MD Gabino Sanchez told the newspaper the man had since been dismissed from the company.
He said: "We wanted to confirm that we have reached out to the prospect customer and her problem has been sorted out satisfactorily.
"We can confirm that we carried out an internal investigation to understand in detail the situation and took the actions needed including the dismissal of the employee.
"The behaviour of this employee was not acceptable and against all our internal policies.
"Our outstanding level of service is consistently recognised by our five-star rating on Trustpilot."
The company offered Chibuzo a £200 gift card as an apology, as well as covering the cost of the clean up.
