‘Dump at pump’ pensioner was “respectable customer”
Disgusted staff speak of petrol station defecation shocker after 76-year-old was told he couldn’t use loos
THE disgusted co-owner of a petrol station where a pensioner bought a pasty then defecated on the forecourt described the offender as a ‘respectable customer’.
A 76-year-old was slapped with an �80 fine after he was captured on CCTV committing the foul act after staff said he couldn’t use their loos.
Police said the culprit went to the toilet in the back of his car then dumped the faeces next to a pump.
Shocked workers said the married offender - who was a regular and ‘respectable’ customer - had bought a pasty and then calmly drove off after relieving himself.

“We’ve been up here for 33 years and in all that time I have never seen anyone defecate on a forecourt,” said Rob, who runs Tower Services in Seaton with his brother Richard.
“We’re calling him ‘the bloke who took a dump on the pump’.
“It really was disgusting.”
The incident took place at around 1pm on Sunday (November 18).
The elderly man was soon identified by police and fined for a public order offence.
PC Steve Speariett said: “Although the male later apologised, this was a truly disgusting act and is totally unacceptable. Fortunately the staff were able to clear up the mess before anybody trod in it”.
Mr Gibbons said customers aren’t allowed to use the conveniences at the petrol station on advice of police as it could become a security issue.
