More brings good clean fun to festival

The Diary, as regular readers will attest, attempts at all times to steer away from toilet humour. But some opportunities are just too good to miss.

More Group joined with the City of Edinburgh Council to open Scotland’s “first revolutionary automatic public toilet (APT)” – just in time for the Edinburgh Festival, er, rush.

But, boy, what a public loo. According to More Group: “Users step into the stone clad structure to find a clean, welcoming, secure bathroom environment with a fresh air supply that is deodorised and thermostatically controlled. Full internal cleaning and flushing after each use is automatic, in addition to a manual flush provision. A unique rotating floor construction ensures a clean, dry surface is presented at every use.”

But however gorgeous and hi tech, people still think the APT door is going to open and leave them exposed to all and sundry. So it’s a good job More Group sent along a maid to help people relax and enjoy the experience.
