A commuter Down Under got a nasty surprise on her way to work when she spotted someone had gone to the toilet on a train SEAT.

The woman – who did not wish to be named – took this picture which has since been reported by news sites in Australia after she spotted the offending brown package on a train in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

As her picture shows a seat is lowered in a space reserved for disabled passengers but on the seat there appears to be what looks like human faeces.

The news site Pedestrian reported the whiffy offering was found on a Melbourne Metro Train train travelling from the Laverton area of the city on Tuesday morning.

The woman said: “There is POO on my train. It smells.”

Later in an attempt to control the odour another passenger tried to cover the fetid interloper with some tissues but apparently this did not stem the stench.
