(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.

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.
