It seems the days are gone when the worst thing you would see when opening your postbox was a bit of junk mail.

Declan Wyatt was making his way down Kingston Road in Ewell Village when out of the corner of his eye he noticed something a little out of place.

He noticed that someone's post box had been left open, something he thought strange.

But upon closer inspection, the real reason became clear.

Someone had left a fresh pile of poo sitting on top of the letters.

"I was amazed when I saw it," Declan said.

"Not too sure how it got in there really.

"Like it must take some technique to do that... presuming it’s human."

Unsurprisingly he had never seen something quite like it before, and it won't be something he will soon forget.

"I’m no faeces specialist, but I think it was human," he added.

"I can only assume the postman ran away in shock."
