Portable toilets have been installed along the South Bank to meet demand from visitors whilst the doors of many of the riverside attractions remain closed.
The installation of the new portable toilets – which are expected to remain in place during July and August – has been coordinated by the South Bank BID.
The toilets have been installed for use by South Bank visitors whilst many of the big institutions whose loos are normally used by tourists – such as the National Theatre and the Southbank Centre – remain shut.
The public toilets at Gabriel's Wharf – which are free to use – are also open.
The move to provide extra loos in north Lambeth is likely to spark calls for similar measures in Southwark along Bankside and around Borough Market, where residents have complained of drinkers at local pubs urinated outside their homes.
