    I really hate people who casually spit in public! Makes my blood boil.
    Unfortunately I see it often around Woolwich & Charlton – makes me want to throw up!

    • I totally agree. There needs to be an instant fine.

      Agreed. The worst I have ever tallied is four different people overtly spitting within 30 mins in Woolwich Town Centre.

    This is an appalling and despicable crime. My sympathies to her family and I hope the perpetrator is swiftly caught.

    Disgusting habit totally agree 100% I hate anyone who spits in public and shows just our disgusting these people really are in our society !!

    Once this matter has been fully investigated and the culprit caught they will need to be tested to see if they had Covid-19 at the time of the said incident. Then they can be charged accordingly. Lets hope they are cuaght sooner rather than later before they can do this again.

    Either way anyone who deliberately spits in the street are the lowest of the low.
