Vile ‘joker’ leaves bag full of human poo at Asda as donation for food bank
More Brits than ever are forced to rely on food banks – but one "joker" left a quite sickening donation.
The Trussel Trust, which operates the majority of the UK’s food banks, have distributed a record 823,145 food parcels between April and September this year.
There are now more than 2,000 food banks across the UK, outnumbering McDonald's and Burger King branches.
And lots of us are doing our bit by putting an extra little something in the food bank collection trolleys near the exits of major supermarkets.

But one vile individual has made a mockery of that, by leaving a bag full of poo at the food bank collection point in Asda’s Llandudno, Wales, branch.
An Asda spokesman said the supermarket was stunned as to why anyone would do such a disgusting thing.
They said: "We are at a complete loss to understand why anyone would do this and will absolutely not tolerate this behaviour.
"We are proud to support local good causes right across the UK, including Hope Restored at our Llandudno store who do such wonderful work for food banks in the area, and we will ensure all of the kind donations that were made by our customers are replaced so that the charity does not go without this Christmas.”

Brenda Fogg, who runs the organisation said she was left "shocked" by the vile act.
She says the festive period is the time they are most "run off their feet" trying to feed families who can't afford to put food on the table.

She continued: "The assistant manager came over and said himself he was disgusted and asked how anyone could do that.
"It upset me because we are run off our feet at this time of year collecting the food so many people have graciously donated."
She added: "It was disgusting and horrible – especially when so many people are in need and we need all the donations we can get.
"Unfortunately, we had to throw a lot of the food away.
"Let's just hope that whoever did it, never has to rely on a food bank themselves one day."
