Response to Video taken at Sutton Train Station.


Following the recent release of a video appearing to show Southern Rail workers pouring dirty water on a homeless person (a Sutton Night Watch Service user) in the Sutton area, we would like to release the following statements.

“This disgusting act by a southern rail employee has shocked us to the core. At Sutton Night Watch Homeless Charity, it sadly comes as no surprise as it is indicative of society’s treatment of the homeless & vulnerable, with no dignity afforded nor respect shown.
These people are human beings & the individuals who committed this act should hang their heads in shame along with the local councils & governments who by their resistance to offer solid support & funding, keep the homeless ON the streets & thereby sanction this simply horrifying behaviour”.
Carole Greig – Director – Sutton Night Watch

“To treat a human being in the way they did was disgusting. For people in his situation, it's a struggle for them, day to day & too many people judge homeless people harshly. Sutton Night Watch are hoping to meet up with the man targeted in the incident, with plans to help him get new dry clothes as soon as possible”
Andy Fulker – Director – Sutton Night Watch
