As our local authorities become more and more financially stretched, they are looking for a quick way to raise cash - and what better way than to sell the "family silver" - that's right, those derelict public loos that have been locked up for years.

The Telegraph reports on one toilet building in South-East London imaginatively converted to a home, whilst another in Kentish Town has been converted to a cocktail bar.
