THE public toilets in Brent Knoll once again belong to the parish council, but villagers will not be able to spend a penny at nightSedgemoor District Council has sold the conveniences back to the parish after buying them for £1 more than 30 years ago. The parish council officially got the toilets back on April 1 after Sedgemoor agreed to sell them back for the same price. The parish council will now once again be responsible for the upkeep of the toilets, as well as paying the electricity and water bills. Parish council clerk Michael Endacott said: "We have also agreed to lock the toilets at night. We have had trouble in the past with kids throwing loo paper down the pan and blocking up the toilets. Sedgemoor has no objection to it."The opening times will not be rigid and councillor Brian Freestone will lock them at his own discretion. Councillor Bob Filmer added: "It is mostly at night when the toilets get misused. Obviously we will need to leave them open for when children are playing football near there, because that's what they are there for. But we don't want them to be vandalised.
