A homeless man was trapped in a public loo in Bath for 24 hours because the local council had closed it for good without checking if it was empty.
It is thought the man had entered the toilets last Sunday looking for somewhere dry to sleep. He was discovered on Tuesday morning after a passerby heard him calling for help.
It appears that maintenance staff from a private contractor locked the doors on Monday morning.
– Bath & North East Somerset Council
“We apologise unreservedly to the man in question, who is fortunately unharmed by this incident. We have now taken action with our contractors to ensure that they follow procedure so that this cannot happen again.”
“Healthmatic’s cleaning and maintenance staff did the final locking up of the toilets on Monday. They knocked on the door as a check and no response was received. It was not opened and visually checked – this should have been done as correct procedure. All the disabled toilets have an emergency alarm – it seems that when the man awoke on Tuesday morning, he sounded the alarm via a pull cord in the toilet and he also banged on the door; this was heard by a passing member of the public who alerted the police, who in turn called Healthmatic. A Healthmatic supervisor was on site within 5- 10 minutes of the call; they offered to take the man to the RUH or a doctors’ surgery for a check-up, which he declined. He was offered food which he accepted and walked away unharmed. The man said that he was happy with the outcome to the Healthmatic staff and police.”

The widow of a man who campaigned for the right to assisted dying has welcomed a change of heart by the former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey.
Jane Nicklinson from Melksham, who's husband Tony was paralysed, says she's delighted the former Bishop of Bath and Wells has changed his mind, and believes others in the church will now speak out in support of assisted dying.
David Woodland reports:
Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has said he changed his views on assisted dying after being inspired by the case of a locked-in syndrome sufferer from Wiltshire.
Tony Nicklinson from Melksham battled for seven years to have the right to end his own life but it was refused and he died naturally aged 58 in 2012.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Lord Carey said: "It was the case of Tony Nicklinson that exerted the deepest influence on me,"
"Here was a dignified man making a simple appeal for mercy, begging that the law allow him to die in peace, supported by his family.
"His distress made me question my motives in previous debates. Had I been putting doctrine before compassion, dogma before human dignity?"
