VIPs have been celebrating the opening of high-tech toilets in central London.
VIP reception for new public toilets under Oxford Circus
Guests enjoyed a champagne reception under Oxford Circus, as a four-piece orchestra played.
The free facilities re-opened on Friday after a two-year £300,000 refit, during which CCTV, damage resistant surfaces and unbreakable lights were fitted.
Guests included members of Westminster council, the British Toilet Association, the Visit London tourist board, and business associations.
The cubicle doors are high off the floor and low at the top to deter drug-takers.
The toilets also provide full-time attendants and surfaces are graffiti-proof and scratch-proof.
CCTV cameras cover the main floor of the lavatories and the lights, based on prison designs, are unbreakable.
Alan Bradley, cabinet member for Environment and Leisure at Westminster City Council, welcomed the new toilets.
He said: "I hope you will agree that this is a splendid, clean, well-equipped public convenience."
It is the latest new toilet to open in central London at a time when the number of public toilets across the UK has fallen by a third in five years.
