That is 39,000 20ps over five years!

Havering Council has collected more than £7,000 in the last five years from public toilets in the borough.

There are six public toilets in Havering that the council charges members of the public 20p to use, these are in Station Parade, Elm Park, Hilldene Avenue in Harold Hill, Upminster Bridge, Appleton Way in Hornchurch, Cherry Tree Lane in Rainham and Avenue Road in Collier Row.

In total between April 2012 and April 2018 the council collected £7,847.80.
