Police have closed down the largest 'unofficial lavatory' in Europe following a crackdown on incontinent night-clubbers.
The Guardian (p4) reports that almost 400 people have been cautioned for using a wall outside Leeds City station as a urinal, ususally after an evening in nearby clubs.
Almost 200 men are due to appear in magistrates court and face a maximum fine of£150 for disorderly conduct.
Inspector Graham Hobson of British Transport Police said the effect was disgusting. 'When people come out of clubs, they come to the station to get a taxi and because they are standing in a queue alongside a wall, some of them take the opportunity to urinate.'
