Mum’s horrifying doorstep find as 'neighbourhood grudge' boils over

The mum was left terrified and disgusted following the incident.

A mum opened her front doorstep only to discover a horrific sight in front of her. Maxi Mayhew, 31, had no choice but to contact the police after she discovered a huge pile of excrement piled on her front doorstep.

The beauty therapist, who is a mum-of-two, claims the stinking mess was disposed of by a neighbour with a grudge against her. She believes the nasty surprise is a pile of dog poo, not human excrement. But it is such a large amount that Maxi thinks the person has stored it up over time.
