Spray back time for public piddlers in Germany

P*ss artists beware...

Residents of Germany’s St. Pauli neighbourhood have declared war on problem p*ss artists by giving them a sprinkle of their own tinkle.

Locals of the Hamburg quarter grew so sick of the stench of urine in their streets that they have painted the walls with a special coating that splashes pee back on public urinators.
