Toilets closure to save 50,000

Seven public toilets are to shut in Oxford, the city council has said.

The decision was taken by councillors at a meeting on Wednesday night, as part of efforts to cut costs.

The council said it spends more than £300,000 a year running the city's 26 toilets and the measure would save £50,000 annually.

It added that more toilets will be made available through a scheme where shops and businesses would open facilities to the public.
