Mystery as phantom pooer defecates on floors of one of UK’s poshest unis

An Agatha Christie-style “poodunit” has been launched over students defecating on the floor at one of Britain’s poshest universities.

Staff at Cambridge have kicked up a stink as they have to keep cleaning up after young scientists.

There have been several incidents of mess being left on the loo floors at the Centre for Molecular Informatics, according to the university newspaper, Varsity.

An email sent to students read: “If you accidentally drop faeces on the floor, please clean it up and/or let reception know.”

The move raised eyebrows, with one chemistry student telling Varsity: “This is a sh***y situation, for sure.

“The fact that I have to look left and right at my fellow chemists and wonder who is responsible makes me feel something smells off about this.”

Chemistry scholars said sorting the mess shouldn’t be the responsibility of the cleaners or other staff of the university, particularly amid ongoing concerns over pay and conditions.

This isn't the first time a mystery defecator has made their mark at a university – students at Southern Illinois University were even left scared to do their washing when a "serial pooper" started targeting laundry rooms on the campus.

The offender reportedly even opened washing machines while there were clothes inside and smeared their excrement around the rubber lining at the edge of the barrel.

At least eight students said they picked their clothes out of the machines only to find faeces on their items – although only one of these incidents was ever officially confirmed.

One student told the university's newspaper, the Daily Egyptian: "I went down into the laundry room to wash my clothes and I opened one of the washers and noticed that it smelled like someone had taken a dump in there.

"I wondered if maybe someone had had an accident in their clothes or something.

"I get my clothes out of the washer and there’s the smell. That is what you encounter first, and then you find it. You see the actual feces… and you’re like 'No, thank you.'"

The university never confirmed whether they managed to identify the culprit.
