Spilt paint on pavement

An eejit dumped some paint cans by the recycling bin. Another eejit kicked them over. Here is the resulting mess! I’ve removed the cans to prevent more spilling out.

  • No attempt has been made to clean up the paint which is now spread across pavement. It appears to be emulsion so could be easily cleaned by a street cleaning vehicle.

  • Still not cleaned up! Would it still be there after all this time if it was Heriot Row or Stockbridge?!
