Shoppers were left horrified after a man with no trousers or pants was spotted casually sunbathing in the city centre.
The picture, which was taken today (June 12) by a man passing in a taxi, only highlights the challenges facing the city centre post-lockdown, reports StokeonTrentLive.
He said: "The driver and pedestrians were shocked to see the guy on the floor with no kegs on. It looked like he was off his t*ts.
"There was a security guard in close proximity along with the old bill.
"It's not something you want to see in broad daylight in the city centre but unfortunately it’s becoming a regular sight.
"It’s a real shame what’s happening to Hanley with drug addicts, drunks and begging everywhere."
Shopper Steve Clews has previously been threatened by an aggressive beggar after he refused to hand over spare change close to the HSBC in Crown Bank.
Just days later, Steve then witnessed a group of rough sleepers stealing post from the letterbox of nightclub Pink.
He has been calling for more to be done to stop anti-social behaviour in the city centre before it becomes a ghost town.
The 36-year-old, from Meir Park, said he almost fell over a man sleeping on the floor when he recently got off a bus in Hanley.
Another man, he claimed, was seen walking around with one trainer on.
"It's not a great impression for when people first arrive in Stoke-on-Trent," he added.
Steve said that "nothing ever seems to get done", despite having called 101 on numerous occasions.
"It's difficult but it's no wonder Hanley is dying because no-one likes going there anymore," he continued. "It's just not a nice atmosphere."
