This is the second time that this resident has caused a distubance at mary street taunton due to taking his medication and falling asleep with the chip fryer on. This time he threw the deep fryer out of his door into the main corridor of the building causing damage to the wall, and creating a big black mess along the wall and all over the floor, none of which was cleaned up by a member of knightstone housing who manage the property. This has left a slip hazard in the corridor and enabled the oil to be tranfered into other properties through regular foot traffic in and out of the building. Come on knightstone sort your act out.
