Yesterday at 3:42pm criminal solicitor Marianna Christou made this shocking discovery.
Not even lying; someone has shit on the floor outside court 7 at Westminster Magistrates Court

Amid the ensuing Twitter storm, hard-hitting news website Vice contacted Christou, of London’s Ronald Fletcher Baker Solicitors, to hear more details about the horror of what she had seen.
In the interview, Christou revealed:
“Okay, so it’s basically like a tiled floor, and it was just sort of in lumps along the floor. Somebody had put cones up but it was quite spaced out so you had to sort of manoeuvre around the cones. And it was there for quite a while — a good hour — because nobody thought to clean it, and it smelt!”
She went on to express concern that following the success of her tweet she could be remembered “for seeing a shit on the floor”:
“I don’t think it’s ever happened before. Ever. I tweeted about it and my Twitter has blown up like never before. It is absurd. It’s literally going viral — I can’t believe I could be infamous for seeing a shit on the floor. It’s just crazy.”
