Belongings have been removed

Reported via mobile in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 11:14, Monday 5 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 day, 4 hours, 37 minutes later. Council ref: 2653311.

Firstly sorry as I was unsure which section to choose. This is probably not the exact one I should have picked.

I have recently been made homeless and decided to spend a bit of time in Browns Folley Woods in Bathford. During this time I managed to build a small shelter had stored my belongings in there. This includes a binliner full of clothes, a massage gun, various toiletries, a stove, sleeping bag, boxing gloves and books.

I had been there for approximately a week, just off the main path as not to get in anyone’s way. When I returned on Friday 2nd April, everything had been removed. There was neither a warning or a note to suggest where I can get my stuff from. If you could help I would be very grateful.

My name is Joseph Cottle, I can be contacted on 07535511599. I am currently staying at the Well-being house in Bath, owned by Curo. This will be for a week. If you could please call me I would appreciate it greatly.

Thank you
