Two Brothers Have Created A Map Showing Britain's Open Public Toilets
Two brothers have created up an online map that will show you where you can find an open public toilet if you find yourself caught short while you're enjoying the new freedom of travel that we've got.
So, even though the lockdown has eased slightly and we're allowed to start getting used to what normal life looks like now, travelling to anywhere at the minute requires either an in-depth knowledge of where you can use a toilet, or staying pretty close to your home.
With that in mind, brothers Thomas and Charlie Riley decided to create their own map showing exactly where you can spend a penny without ending up getting fined, or being downright antisocial.
It's called Lockdown Loo, and it offers people a chance to actually enjoy their first days out since March without the fear that comes with not knowing where a nearby toilet is.
The map includes public toilets that are open, as well as ones in places like service stations, train stations, and businesses that are open following the 15 June reopening of non-essential business.
Gone are the days when you could just step into a pub to relieve yourself quickly - although we can't actively support that kind of behaviour, and you should probably just buy a pint or a packet of peanuts.
Until those heady days return - sooner rather than later, please - you can use this map to find your nearest public convenience.
The two lads said: "This website is only as useful as the information we are supplied.
"If you know of toilets which are open - whether they are at pubs, stations, cafes or in a public park - please submit them.
"We are also monitoring council updates and speaking to businesses."

There you have it - spread the news, and tell the guys if you know of somewhere that's open.
Don't, I repeat, don't just decide that you can take a s*** in someone's garden because there's nowhere open.
Despite that being utterly gross and massively selfish, that's exactly what happened on a beach in Somerset, according to one woman's account.
June Day, who lives near the beautiful Brean Down beach, said that the lack of open toilets at the National Trust beauty spot caused someone to drop trouser and defecate in her garden.
She said: "One man told me he was standing on land that doesn't belong to me, so he was fine doing it [you know what].
"My husband walked the dog the other day and he stepped over three lots of human faeces with discarded underwear which they'd just left."
Don't be like these guys, just use the map and find somewhere suitable - and legal - to do your dirty business.
