Maurice Neill in his recent letter rightly comments highlighting overflowing litter bins at many of our top tourist spots.
Might I add to this that I think the state of most of our public toilets in places like Crawfordsburn Country Park, Bangor Pickie Pool and Bloody Bridge, is an absolute disgrace.
My wife used all three 'amenities' recently and found each set of ladies toilets absolutely disgusting. Strangely enough the men's toilets were passable.
Foreign visitors must be nauseated and appalled when they are forced to use these examples!
Councils should have realised by now that all public toilets should have a paid attendant present during daylight hours or they will just get abused by filthy people of both sexes.
This also means that these toilets cannot be safely left open at night and should be locked up.
On top of this we have the continuing fact that at Belvoir Forest Park, one of our premier suburban parks, there are no toilets available at all to the public.
No-one in authority appears to be able to offer an understandable explanation for this.
For goodness sake why in this day and age is the toilet block that is built at Belvoir, not open to the public?
Please councils, get your act together.
Having a clean usable public toilet in a town or park area is surely a most basic of human rights!
