BUS passengers needing to spend a penny will breathe a sigh of relief this Saturday. (October 20).

Sedgemoor District Council has signed a lease with cafe operator Pauline Collard, who will be opening the T Stop Cafe at Bridgwater Bus and Coach Station and keeping the public toilets next door open.

The Mercury reported how people were left angry and frustrated when the toilets were closed in March last year, before Bridgwater Town Council stepped in to reopen them on a temporary basis.

District council property manager Tim Mander said: “It has taken some time and careful negotiation to get this far.”
