Dad Claims Wetherspoon Baby Changing Station 'Used To Snort Cocaine'
Chris Kempson found a rolled up £20 ($25) note on the white plastic baby changing table in the disabled toilet at the Admiral of the Humber pub in Hull city centre on Saturday morning (19 October).
The 48-year-old dad-of-six had gone to the pub to treat his friend to a birthday breakfast, and saw the rolled up £20 on the open table as soon as he walked into the ground floor disabled toilet.
He said it was 'obvious' the baby changing table had been used by someone snorting cocaine and described it as being 'beyond belief' that someone would do such a thing.
Asked if he reported it to the staff, Mr Kempson said: "No, but I did tell the dad with [a] baby who was going in there, he wiped it down with baby wipes. If they wanna stick that s*** up their nose that's their issue, but a baby changing station to rack up on is so low. Really not cool.
"It's their choice if they wanna stick beak up their nose, but why would someone use that as a snorting table? It's beyond belief."
Mr Kempson said he suspects the note had been left since the Friday night. He went on: "They [staff] ain't cleaned it otherwise cash would of been gone. Someone said to me before 'name and shame' pub, but how can you blame the pub?
"It's the idiot who did it to be honest, unless it's been there all night, then it's their issue as well then. With a bit of luck the little b****** might see it [the story] and make them rethink.
"Wetherspoons baby changing table is not the place to be doing lines of coke folks."
The dad admits he kept the money to pay for breakfast.
Eddie Gershon, a Wetherspoon spokesman said: "We apologise to the gentleman concerned. Wetherspoon has zero tolerance to the use of drugs in its pubs.
"It is impossible to monitor what goes on in a toilet cubicle once the door has been locked. However, we fully appreciate that the discovery of cocaine in the toilet is unacceptable."
