Homeless Person in Doorways

4 years ago...

Any ideas on what we can do with the filthly homeless drunk who resides in the doorway of NatWest and Santander on Victoria Road? He now has similar acquaintances who join him in the doorway sonthey can get drunk together. Nice.


Surely there is not that much police work to do in surbiton? We are not South Central Los Angeles (yet). Can't they bother themselves to go round and sort this problem out? It's got to be affecting business and hardly adds to the ambience of our town. I would perhaps have felt some sympathy in the past but they drink happily all day, make a mess, and I have twice been aggressively approached. One the first occasion I had to stand my ground as the beggar threatened to "tear my eyes out." (Sainsburys car park). I'm not making this up. The second time I was spat at. Just get rid of them frankly.

Well this week there were three new ones in the doorways and sitting on the bench outside NatWest. And a poor sweltering dog. And nothing is done.

Pure filth. The council needs to do something about it.

Have you ever been homeless?
I know what it's like

He's not homeless, and the pikey scum has been there for years.

Good luck.
