Major concern as Crawley Council confirm excrement found on children’s slides was human

What was originally thought to be dog excrement has now been identified as human.



On the 19th Aug we ran a story about dog faces found spread along the length of two children’s slides in two separate play areas, one in Gainsborough playing fields and one in Furnace Green.

Now the council has confirmed that in-fact the excrement was NOT an animals but was human.

You can read the original story here.

Tilgate Councillor Francis Guidera said:

I am shocked that this has been identified as human waste. I don’t think any of us could ever understand why someone would want to do this.

John Fox sent in this photo of the toddler slide in Furnace Green.

Once discovered the council immediately cordoned off the areas and sent in a cleaning team to ensure that the slides were safe for children to use.

One Tilgate resident said:

“It’s obvious to me that whoever did this thought it was funny but let’s face it there’s nothing funny when a kid gets seriously ill because they touched it.”

Some of the infections that can be transmitted through human faeces include cholera and diarrhea (also or dysentery) such as E coli diarrhea, salmonella or shigella.

There are also viral infections that can be transmitted including rotavirus, norovirus (which causes food poisoning on cruise ships), and hepatitis A and E.

Parasites such as giardia and cryptosporidium, and various different kinds of worms including pinworms, ascariasis and tapeworms can also be transmitted.

Anyone taking their children to play areas are being asked to be vigilant in case of repeat offences.

Crawley Council and Crawley police have been contacted for more information on what action is being taken to both investigate the incidents and to prevent any repetition.
