A British drug suspect is entering his third week without going to the toilet for police.

Lamarr Chambers, 24 from Brixton, London, was arrested in Harlow on January 17 by Essex Police, Metro UK reported.

He is suspected to have concealed Class A drugs on himself and has been charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug, failing to stop and driving without insurance.

Since his arrest Chambers has gone on a self-imposed toilet strike - a move police have dubbed as #PooWatch while posting regular updates on their Twitter.

In their latest update, police said "Day 21/3 weeks for our man on #poowatch still no movements/items to report, he will remain with us until Friday when we are back at court where we will be requesting a further eight days should he not produce anything before that hearing".

 

The longest time an inmate has gone without using a toilet is believed to be 23 days.

Police have until Friday to apply to magistrates for more time to wait for Chambers to break his strike.

An Essex Police spokesperson told Metro UK "we take the safety of all our detainees extremely seriously".

"In instances where individuals are suspected of ingesting drugs or having substances inside them they are subject to regular health checks, including hospital visits, ultrasound scans and x-rays.

"They are also constantly monitored by a minimum of two officers whilst they remain in custody."
