“We’ve had them tenting out, with had them using drugs on the site the sites been strewn with needles. Recently we’ve had a guy changing in our car park, he slept in our door way. We’ve come in in the morning and found he’s urinated in the doorway and we’ve had blood in the doorway – it’s been a pretty awful set of circumstances”
