A manhunt is underway to track down a mystery pooer who keeps defecating in a lift.

Disgusted neighbours claim someone is routinely relieving themselves in the elevator and stairwells in their apartment block.

The stinking issue has got so bad that council bosses are trying to flush out the culprit.

Fuming residents said somebody is "regularly" doing a number in the lifts and they have even had to put signs up about the problem.

And the situation has caused such a stink among neighbours they have complained to their local council leader, Wales Online reports.

Declan Stuart, who lives at the flats, shared a picture of the disgusting discovery on social media in a bid to clear-up the site.

Mr Stuart said nothing has been done about the "regular" problem.

He said: “That is literally a pile of human s*** and p*** in the lift.

He added: "this is regular. Even residents have put signs up.

“There’s literally cameras in both lifts looking at it, on every floor on the stairs, every hallway and two to three cameras on every corner outside the flat but no, anything get done?

"There’s cameras in both lifts, camera on every floor watching the lift and stairs, cameras on every floor going up the stairs.

“There was signs a few weeks back saying please don’t do this and stuff from the people on few of the floors.

“It’s bad that’s gotta happen.”

Sam Chivers, in reply to the post, simply said: “Disgusting. That’s really bad, who would do their business anywhere other than the toilet?”

Adam West also spoke out about the grim discovery and added: “Nasty. Some people really have no pride.”

Council bosses have said they will investigate the disgusting problem.

Swansea Council Rob Stewart leader said: "I’ve reported to housing officers and asked for immediate action.”

A Swansea Council spokesman added: “Issues linked to anti-social behaviour in and around Matthew Street flats are taken very seriously and we are as upset and distressed as our residents are about recent activities where a lift has been used as a toilet.

"Immediate steps have been taken to clean the lift after it was reported to us and we have increased patrols by our Neighbourhood Support Unit, increasing evening patrols also.

“In the coming weeks we will be looking to engage further with tenants in Matthew Street, where they will be able to raise their concerns with the council and other agencies, including the police, so further action can be taken to tackle anti-social behaviour and help improve the local environment for our tenants.

“We would urge tenants to continue reporting issues to the council and police so they can be addressed immediately.”
