The world is waiting with bated breath for a man to go to the toilet.
It is now 20 days since the hero/villain of our story was arrested for being a suspected drug dealer.
The 24-year-old, was arrested by Essex Police’s finest when they got their talons on him as part of Operation Raptor.
He is suspected to have concealed drugs on himself before his arrest in Harlow on January 17.
He’s since gone onto a self-imposed toilet strike and is under constant supervision, including daily medical assessments, until his time passes.
