Ten public toilets in Edinburgh that were closed to save the council £300,000 are to be sold.

Toilets at Ardmillan, Canaan Lane, Canonmills, Currie, Granton Square, Joppa, Juniper Green, London Road, St John's Road and Tollcross will be sold over the next few months.

Council officials said the toilets could be converted into cafes.

There are now 19 public toilets in the city and more than 60 publicly-accessible toilets in council premises.

Lesley Hinds, Edinburgh City Council's transport and environment convener, said: "We can confirm that we have recently closed several public toilet buildings and these will be put on the open market in the next couple of months."
