An angry resident has revealed his shocking diary records showing every bit of filth and crime spotted on a 100m stretch of his road in just 27 days.
His records show people urinating and defecating in the street as well as suspicious exchanges between hooded youths.
The shocking list of instances were recorded between June and July last year, on Beverley Road in Hull.
Already offering five mini-market off-licences, the unnamed man’s diary was submitted as evidence by the police in a bid to prevent the council granting a licence for a sixth shop, reports the Hull Daily Mail .
It comes just a week after a gang of rowdy street drinkers were seen at the other end of the same road – close to the Mail offices – swigging red wine and fighting with each other.
Although the street drinking gangs are separate and not known to each other, the issue of drunks causing misery appears to stretch the length of Beverley Road. Nearby Spring Bank is also a hot-spot for gangs of drunks, who have previously been described as a "menace" by worried residents.
The diary, written in full below, was submitted as evidence by Humberside Police in the force’s objection to the granting of a new licence for a sixth store – Zodiak Local – but city councillors still voted unanimously to approve the application.

In evidence submitted to the licensing committee, Humberside Police community beat manager PC Stephen Morley revealed just one dispersal notice had been issued by the force over a 12-month period in the area under special powers introduced in 2016 to combat street drinking and antisocial behaviour.
That followed an incident when a man was arrested at 9.30am for being drunk and disorderly on the forecourt of the Jet garage after he urinated in full view of a woman customer who was filling her vehicle with fuel.
In a statement, PC Morley said the problems were almost exclusively being caused by eastern European males as the area was used as a daily pick-up and drop-off point for factory workers.
He added: "Local residents have been complaining to the police for several years now about the anti-social behaviour by mainly males who are congregating on Beverley Road and in the tenfoots, drinking alcohol, defecating, leaving litter and empty alcohol containers."
In granting the licence for the new Zodiak Local store, the shop will only be allowed a minimum of four cans or bottles of beer in a single transaction.
All sales will also be restricted to alcohol with a volume strength of 6.5 per cent or below.
