A Kettering shopping centre has proved it is not going down the pan after being awarded a Loo of the Year honour.

The Newlands Shopping Centre won a platinum award in the hunt for the best toilets in Britain.

The centre was entered in the retail category.

The Loo of the Year Awards and associated Attendant of the Year Awards for cleaning staff have been identifying the best in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide facilities for staff, customers and visitors.

Each entry received an unannounced visit from an authorised Loo of the Year Awards inspector and was assessed against 100 judging criteria, including signage and decor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.

The top-rated loos are short-listed for national recognition.
