    Just tried, not going to post the video, it includes lots of blood and screaming which will cause you to gouge your own eyeballs if viewed. Choice is yours

    I would say it needs a professional level pressure washer on it. Has it eaten through the surface??

    a fungicidal wash will help. If it doesn't get rid of all stains/marks it will have at least killed everything off. just bleach it afterwards to get rid of any discolouration.

    You can get good fungicidal wash at decorating centres. get one suitable for outdoors only, much stronger than indoor types.
