Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…
A woman says she is disgusted after witnessing a man with his trousers down struggle to keep himself upright at a bus stop in Retford.
The man could be seen finding it difficult to stay stood up at the bus shelter in Station Road outside the train station yesterday, Thursday, September 12.
The woman took a video of the man and says she was horrified by what she was witnessing.
“I am absolutely disgusted by this kind of behaviour and inconsideration to the fact that young kids will be coming out of school to see something like this,” she said.
“I could see a young man finding it increasingly hard to sit or stand. He was swaying and unfortunately losing his lower clothing. It was not a nice sight for anyone to see.
“His jeans were around his upper thighs below his butt cheeks. He had boxers on.
“I didn’t see him take anything.
“I feel quite angry about it, but you don’t know what is going on in people’s lives for them to be in that situation.”
It is not clear what caused the man to act like he did, but the mum and grandmother says it was worse as children go to school nearby.
She said: “I was with a friend who has a child in primary school and one that’s just started Retford Oaks – it’s not a good thing to see really.
“My children have grown up now but it’s not something I’d like my grandchildren to see.
“It’s not a path that I’d like any child go down.”
However, the woman insists there is no one to blame other than the individuals themselves.
She added: “I don’t know what can be done. You can’t help someone who won’t or doesn’t want to help themselves.
“Unfortunately I feel this is a problem that will continue for generations to come.”
