Two girls under 5 rescued from filthy flat filled with rubbish, rotting food and bags of human POO, as couple avoid jail

TWO girls were rescued from a filthy flat filled with rubbish, rotting food and bags of human poo.

The children, one and five, were living in squalid conditions with couple Marc Wearing, 28, and Charlotte Bond, 26.


Police searched their flat in Worthing, West Sussex, after reports of flies and a bad smell, which neighbours thought meant there was a dead body inside. 

The flat was allegedly full of rubbish, rotting food on kitchen surfaces, bags of human excrement and excrement on the walls, and many black bin bags of rubbish.

Detective Constable Lindsey Van-Buiten said: "Attending officers described the conditions as the worst they had seen in their police career, and described the overwhelming smell and tens of thousands of flies inside the flat. 

“Local people who called the police even thought there must be a dead body there."
