Amanda Lee, 50, from Crewe, Cheshire, has been treating her town like it’s her very own private bathroom for years, and has been ordered by police to stop.


Lee has been convicted 15 times dating back to 1996 for offences including anti-social behaviour, harassment, public order, and abusing the emergency system, reports news outlet Cheshire Live.

Police issued her a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO), which prevents Lee from doing these five things in the “exclusion zone” around her town:

She can’t be in possession of alcohol in an open container.
She can’t use abusive language or threatening behaviour in a public place nor use a dog to threaten or intimidate people.
She can’t contact police on the emergency numbers 999 or 101 unless she has a genuine reason for doing so.
She can no longer “urinate or defecate” in any open space, public or private.
There’s also a street, Preece Court, that Lee is no longer allowed to enter.

“She has persistently shown no consideration at all for the actions her offending has had on others,” police constable Alex Barker said, according to Cheshire Live.

“There comes a point when you have to say enough is enough and take additional action to protect the community and businesses in the area.”

If Lee breaches the terms of her CBO, she could receive a maximum of five years in jail.

The patient who received the kidney is recovering and was compatible with the organ, but the patient who was supposed to get the kidney is still waiting for the life-saving transplant surgery.


University Hospitals released a statement on Monday acknowledging the mistake, reports Cleveland.com.

“We have offered our sincerest apologies to these patients and their families. We recognize they entrusted us with their care,” read the statement. “The situation is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to helping patients return to health and live life to the fullest.”

According their website, University Hospitals is “one of the nation’s leading health care systems, providing patient-centered care that meets the highest standards for quality and patient safety.”

The botched surgery happened on July 2, reported the New York Post, where the hospital issued another statement saying they are “dismayed” by the error.

The hospital is “carefully reviewing this situation to understand what led to the error and to ensure that such an event will never happen again.”

The two employees will remain on leave as the investigation continues.

Cleveland.com reported that the hospital system has performed 95 kidney transplants this year, based on information from the U.S. Department Health of Human Services Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network.

The hospital system performed 194 kidney transplants in 2020.
