A family-of-three have been taken for mental health examinations after police found hundreds of plastic bottles with urine stored in their apartment.
Parents and their adult son, named Zhenya, had been relieving themselves into bottles for a year after having their utilities cut off for unpaid bills in the city of Aktau, southwestern Kazakhstan.
They were reported to the police by their neighbours who were tired of the unbearable stench coming from their home.
Police had to use a crowbar to break in after the owners refused to cooperate and open the front door.

The family of three had been relieving themselves into plastic bottles for a year after having their utilities cut off for unpaid bills. They collected about 300 gallons (1,300 liters) of urine
When cops raided the apartment they also found a mountain of clothes in the middle of a room
Entering the room, shocked officers saw hundreds of plastic bottles filled with urine and stored on the floor, reports said.
Pictures of the apartment taken by local media show a mountain of rotting clothes in the middle of a room and urine stored in the filthy kitchen.
The inhabitants of the ‘house of horror’ explained to law enforcement they started to urinate into bottles a year ago after having utilities turned off for failure to pay.
During this time, they collected about 300 gallons (1,300 liters) of urine, according to local media.
The family in Kazakhstan also let the kitchen get into a filthy state as neighbours complained about the constant smell coming from the apartment

The homeowners’ son, named locally as Zhenya (pictured talking to officers), willingly agreed to go to hospital with police. Neighbours said he quit his job and became a recluse
All members of the family were taken for examination to a local mental facility.
According to neighbours, they turned their home into a rubbish dump and lived among hordes of cockroaches.
Next door, a woman called Svetlana Nenastyeva told a local TV channel: ‘We think Zhenya’s parents damage his life and have a bad influence on him.
‘About two years ago he quit his job, switched to a reclusive life then stopped washing.
‘This family is a big problem for us. We are tired to live in constant stench coming from their home.’
Neighbours are now organising themselves to clean the filthy apartment, local reports stated.
