Two north Norfolk loos have won high praise from a national toilet inspector. 

The public toilets at Stearman’s Yard in Wells-next-the-Sea and in Queen’s Road, Fakenham, have been given ‘diamond’ grading in the Loo of the Year Awards Scheme for 2023.

Councillor Tim Adams, leader of North Norfolk District Council, said: “We are pleased that further investments in our public conveniences have once again been recognised by Loo of the Year.
