Cheltenham Festival racegoers peeing in streets face being soaked in wee by splash-back walls… – The US Sun

CHELTENHAM Festival racegoers peeing in the streets face being sent galloping off with their trousers soaked in wee by splash-back walls.
They need to find the going tougher after dozens were seen publicly ­urinating in the town centre last year, a councillor says.
Max Wilkinson wants walls around the course covered in hydrophobic paint so the urine is sprayed back at the ­bladdered culprits.
He declared a war on public weeing, saying: “It is illegal, unpleasant to see and makes many people feel uncomfortable or threatened — particularly women.
“We shouldn’t have to put up with this anymore. I’m sure the prospect of wet trousers will make people think twice.”
Splash-back paint has already protected the historic walls of Chester and those of Soho in central London.
Lib Dem Mr Wilkinson called on the Jockey Club, Cheltenham council and Gloucestershire Police to help Cheltenham council fund it.
He said extra loos had failed to curb the ­problem.
A Cheltenham Racecourse spokesman said: “Antisocial behaviour of any kind is unacceptable and we work closely with the local community to promote responsible behaviour from racegoers before, during and after all our racedays.
"As part of this commitment we launched our Love Our Turf campaign last year which seeks to improve the journey for racegoers between the town and the racecourse, has been trialled successfully already and will be launched in full for the Cheltenham Festival in March.
“The ‘Love Our Turf’ campaign is in partnership with local stakeholders including Gloucestershire Police, Gloucestershire Council and Cheltenham BID (Business Improvement District) and will promote recognised arrival and departure routes for racegoers with increased toilet facilities, wayfinding ushers, street performers, enhanced street cleaning and more bins helping in place.”
