Mountain covered in poo as bank holiday chaos sees people defecate in public

A 'disgusted' Snowdonia walking guide has claimed that the Easter Bank Holiday weather drove an influx of hikers to the mountain who have left it 'covered in poo.'

Snowdonia is the highest mountain in Wales and regularly draws in the crowds however as you would expect there is a lack of toilet facilities on the slope.

And according to guide Gemma Davies, this had led some desperate walkers to take matters into their own hands in the most literal sense.

Speaking to the BBC, Ms Davies claimed that she'd never seen anything like it on the mountain and that some men were pooing out in the open.

She said: "There was a lot of stool in paper cups, under stones, and as we were descending it was on the path

"I caught a guy going to the toilet on the railway line.

"He quickly pulled up his pants and tried to make a quick getaway.

"But I had already seen it, my group had already seen it. And we had to walk past it as well."

People across the country have been bathing in sunny conditions this weekend, with the mercury reaching 22C in St James Park, London on Good Friday.

However, the UK could be plunged back into a new round of wintry weather in a matter of days — despite temperatures rocketing up to summery highs this weekend.

A new weather map from independent forecaster WXCharts show that a shock return to snowy scenes could be on the horizon, thanks to Arctic winds blowing in from the north.

The radar shows the first band of snow sweeping in across the north of Scotland late on Friday 29 April, before moving down the north-east coast of England on Saturday 30 April.

May then begins with widespread snow across the United Kingdom, with flakes falling in the south of England and Wales on Sunday 1 and Monday 2 May.

In the meantime, Netweather expect temperatures to peak at 18C today (Sunday 17) in the south east, sliding down to 16C on Monday before a considerable drop off as the week progresses.
