The toilets were built in the 19th Century
A budding restaurateur is planning to spend £1m on turning a block of toilets into a bistro in Nottingham.
Umar Jaspal bought the former public toilets on Carrington Street for about £500,000 and intends to spend a further £500,000 renovating the building.
Mr Jaspal said he "fell in love with the building" while on a visit to the city and saw it was for sale.
The building was originally built as a facility for people working on the Nottingham Canal in about 1840.
"It's the character of the building that attracted me," said Mr Jaspal.
"We are putting in a state-of-the-art fast food restaurant and the area that faces Carrington Street will be the restaurant area.
"It's a beautiful site and to get that in a city centre is a privilege."
The renovation work is under way but it is not yet known when the restaurant will open.
