Family shamed for trashing restaurant

A family has been slammed online after they walked away from their table leaving a "disgusting mess" for staff to clean up.

The diners were shamed on Facebook after they left napkins, food, sauce packets, menus and upturned cups strewn across the booth, floor and chair of the restaurant in Colchester, Essex in the UK last week.

A picture of the mess was shared on Facebook group Spotted: Colchester by an anonymous person, who was outraged by the grubby act.

"I don't care who you are, how often you get to go out to eat, how many kids you've got or how bad your day has been," the Facebook post said.

"It is NOT okay to go out to dinner and walk away from your table - leaving it in a state like this for somebody else to clear up."
