COMING back from Durham on the bus one day last year, I saw two men urinating in broad daylight in Langley Moor.

I thought that once that would have been raised eyebrows – but not now.

I mean, what’s a bloke supposed to do when caught short and no toilet available?

The lack of public toilets in County Durham is a disgrace and it’s particularly acute in the centre of Durham City.

When the council messed up the Market Place a few years ago the one thing they did not do was install public toilets (mind you, give credit where due, they did do something very essential – they turned Lord Londonderry round on his plinth so that now when you are sitting there you are looking directly at his horse’s backside).

Well done (yes, I’m being sarcastic).
