The toilets at the Wallaw pub in Blyth.

The Wallaw, in Union Street, has been awarded a platinum rating by inspectors.

Award inspectors make unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.

All of the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

The toilets are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

The Wallaw, a Wetherspoon pub, is managed by Lauren Jenner.

Lauren said: "We are delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in first-class condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors."
