Man allegedly caught urinating in Central Park, Boston. Due to their being no official police investigation, we have blurred the image.

A motorist has sent in a picture to The Standard of a man allegedly caught urinating in Boston’s Central Park.

The woman, who does not want to be named, said she was ‘horrified.’

She said the incident happened last week near the park gates, where she had parked on Thorold Street.

She added: “School children where walking through the park...it was 7.30am.”

After initially not reporting the incident to police, she has now done so. Boston Borough Council is also reviewing the picture in a bid to identify the man.

A Boston Borough Council spokesman said: “If there is any evidence to help lead us to the person who committed the offence we will pursue him under the Environmental Protection Act. This is punishable with a £75 fine.

“Unfortunately, this is always a difficult offence to prove. Even CCTV or photographic evidence does not always identify the offender and lead our enforcement officers to their front door.

“However, offenders will soon have to be much more on their guard as the council has recruited third-party enforcement, in addition to our own enforcement officers, to patrol the town and borough at unsocial and unannounced times. Particular attention will be paid to known hot spots.

“This will be done with no cost to the tax payer. Income received as a result of action by the Enforcement Officers will be used to pay for the service.”

The police are encouraging members of the public to report such incidents on the non-emergency 101 number.
