Deliveroo drivers have been seen urinating in streets around Mitcham and Morden to the disgust of residents.

That is the word from MP Siobhain McDonagh who said she has received "a number" of these obscene acts taking place.

"This is completely unacceptable behaviour, causing disgust and distress for my constituents and adding to the antisocial behaviour that has recently grown, particularly in Mitcham Town Centre," she wrote in a letter addressed to Deliveroo CEO Will Shu.

"I am sure you will agree that this is also disgustingly unhygienic for the recipient of the food.

"I am sure you appreciate that riders urinating in the street whilst wearing your logo is extremely damaging for your company."

Following on from this, she was able to meet with the company to discuss the issue.

But she told the Wimbledon Times that the food service's response wasn't entirely up to scratch.

"The issue is that Deliveroo drivers were not being given access to toilets and therefore were weeing in the street," she said.

"So we wrote to Deliveroo, they came in and we talked about it.

"They argued that they would always expect any of their restaurants or takeaways they are working with to allow the drivers access to a toilet, to a drink or for somewhere to sit."

A Deliveroo spokesman seemed to echo those sentiments.

"Deliveroo works closely with our major restaurant partners to ensure that toilet facilities are available for riders working with us," he said.

"Where there are suitable facilities present, but not made available we engage with partners directly to address the issue.

"We were delighted to meet Siobhain McDonagh MP and highlight the great work out riders do in the community."

But Ms McDonagh wasn't so sure.

She believes that a firm commitment with restaurants on matters such as toilet use should be made before Deliveroo takes a business on board.

"It makes women not want to go into town centres, kids not want to and generally demeans the whole neighbourhood," she added.

"Deliveroo said that if a restaurant refused these facilities then they wouldn’t partner with them, but our argument is they shouldn’t partner with them until they agree that they can use the facilities, it should be part of the agreement."
