Sacrist's Gate toilets from closure. The actual facts are, all Lib Dems who sat on the community services committee when this issue came up voted to close these toilets.

I'm very pleased, after public consultation, this decision was reversed due to the inadequate disabled access at the Palace Green toilets, and good housekeeping by the community services committee.

Nothing to do with pressure from the Lib Dems!

I would suggest that the Friend-Smiths, rather than having their photo taken, would be better speaking to their Lib Dem colleagues who voted to close this much-needed facility.
