Council paying to borrow toilets

Toilet sign
There will be signage at each "partnership location"

A council is offering businesses, shops and hotels up to £2,000 a year to let members of the public use their toilet.

Aberdeenshire Council is aiming to increase the number of free-to-use toilets open to the public.

There will be signs at each "partnership location" to make people aware that they can use them.

A council spokesman said: "Interest in the scheme has been very positive and we are at an advanced stage in discussions."
