The first-ever survey of council-run public toilets has produced some grubby findings.

Researchers visited 150 toilets across the country...four out of ten of them had no soap.

In a few cases, there wasn't any running water.

They're also concerned about the of spreading respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases.
