A WEM business has been left 'disgusted' after someone defecated behind their building and left their socks behind.

Wem Dry Cleaners, based in Leek Street, was visited by a 'phantom poo-er' on Wednesday evening, much to confusion and disgust of the business owners.

The perpetrator also left behind a pair of soiled socks after being caught short.

Michael Hughes, who helps run the dry cleaners, was particularly upset at the incident.

"It's disgusting," he said.

"They've done their business and left a pair of white Nike socks behind.

"I just don't understand it.

"I don't have any CCTV – I wish I did as I would name and shame.

"I haven't got a clue who it could be, it would have happened after 10pm.

"Some husband or boyfriend has got into bed with cold ankles last night."
