Hyndburn Superloo - well done to the Daily Star for reporting the story accurately

SPENDING a penny costs £18 a time in a town’s “superloo”.

(Tory) Councillors signed a £28,245-a-year deal to rent it until 2023, thinking they would get their money back by charging people 20p a visit.

But town hall twits positioned it less than 4ft from a free public toilet.

In a whole year only 1,520 people used the facilities – earning the council just £304.

Just to break even, the toilet would have to be used 386 times a day – roughly once every four minutes right round the clock.

And to make matters worse, the loo’s water supply was accidentally turned off – but nobody noticed for weeks.
