Would you spend a penny in a public toilet?

Well, if you're caught short while out and about in Sunderland, the city's public toilets have not been handed a good rating.

A survey of 2,500 Brits has named the best public and worst public toilets in the UK- and Wearside's water closets score only 3.4 out of 10 on the hygiene scale.

Carried out by Soap Supplier, the research used a 10-point rating that takes into consideration a toilet's cleanliness and hygiene.

Overall, the UK's public toilets have scored 3.9/10.

Worcester is home to the best public toilets, scoring 6.7/10. We're not sure whether that's something to be proud of or not ...
