Commenting on the Royal Society for Public Health report into the impact of reduced access to public toilets, UNISON head of local government Jon Richards said:
“Billions of pounds slashed from council budgets mean people struggle to spend a penny even when they’re desperate.
“It’s also a real inconvenience for those who work outside, such as care assistants, district nurses, refuse collectors and others who don’t have offices.”
