New Plymouth toilets bowl over judges
THE city's newest toilets have been awarded top marks in a Loo of the Year competition.
Armada Way toilets, which were reopened earlier this year, have been awarded the platinum standard by the British Toilet Association.
They were described by judges as "excellent new facilities equipped to a high standard and very clean".
The toilets were reopened in April after a major facelift, which included work to update the drainage.

Ground-level facilities for people with disabilities and parents with pushchairs were installed.
To help pay for the cost of the refurbishment, users pay 20p, although people with disabilities can use the toilets on ground level for free provided they have a radar key.
It is estimated about 250,000 customers will pay to use the toilets a year and up to 40,000 disabled customers will visit them. Plymouth City Council runs 24 public toilets.
