World toilet day highlights third world sanitation

A London toilet was transformed into a 'loo form hell' by a leading water charity to highlight the fact 2.5billion people live without proper sanitation.

As part of World Toilet Day today (November 19) WaterAid and award-winning ad director Kit Lynch-Robinson turned a loo in Hyde Park Corner into a maggot invested rubbish dump.

A spokesman for WaterAid said: "Life without a proper toilet is a reality for 2.5billion people in the developing world.

"For one morning only, members of the public were invited to see for themselves the kind of squalid toilet environment that billions across Africa and Asia have to live with every day."
