Close to 10,000 people in Glasgow have been caught going to the toilet on the street, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The Glaswegian report:

THOUSANDS of grotty Glaswegians have been caught publicly urinating and defecating on the citys streets.

The Glaswegian can reveal that over a 19-month period nearly 8600 people received ASBO tickets from police officers for the disgusting offence.

Shockingly, more fines were issued to dirty Glaswegians doing their shameful business in the street in one month alone than were issued to dog owners who allowed their animals to foul the streets in a whole year.
