A Kettering pub's toilets have been found to be better than bog standard after they won acclaim in the Loo of the Year Awards for 2021.

The Earl of Dalkeith in Dalkeith Place was given a platinum rating by inspectors, after judges made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK.

All of the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all. The toilets are judged against numerous criteria including decor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.
