  School gets full-time 'toilet police'
Updated 23 February 2002, 18.55
Young people smoking
A school in Scotland is the first to employ a full-time 'toilet attendant' to stamp out bad behaviour in the bog.

Staff and some pupils at Inveralmond Community High School in West Lothian hope the 'toilet police' will stop students smoking and bullying there.

The attendant was brought in after pupils themselves moaned about so many of their classmates puffing away in the toilets, the Daily Record newspaper reported.

The toilet watchman also keeps a close eye out for vandals, to make school toilets a nicer place to be.

Anti-smoking groups have called the scheme "groundbreaking".

Toilet police could now catch on at other schools because it's already been such a success in stopping bad behaviour.
