ONE of Hereford's most used toilets are up for sale - but not for use as lavatories.

The block, in Union Street, is likely to be demolished and the site developed for other purposes. It has a guide price of about £120,000.

Herefordshire Council spokesman Colin Birks said the Union Street toilets - which in years past had a lady attendant and won awards as the best in Hereford - would remain open until the end of the year.

By then, the council hopes to have completed a new state-of-the-art prefab style toilet facility for both men and women not far away in the Gaol Street car park at a cost of about £180,000.

The Union Street toilets are described as "a rare opportunity to acquire a city centre site with potential for re-development in a much-improving retail area just 200 metres from High Town".

The site will be auctioned by Sunderlands at the Left Bank Village on Friday, November 17.
