There is anger over a new 20p fee to use some of Cornwall's public toilets.

For the first time we are going to be charged for the convenience of using some of the council's conveniences in the Duchy.

Officials say it is to make sure no more have to close as it battles tightening budgets.

Boscastle and Marazion are the first to be hit.

Notices have already gone up warning of the changes.

In a statement a spokesperson for the council said: "To ensure we can remain within our budget and do our best to safeguard against closing further facilities, we will be introducing charging for using public toilets in a small number of suitable locations.

"Notices have been put up in those facilities at Boscastle and Marazion where we are shortly to begin charging.

"When we asked members of the public for their views on toilet provision in 2012, half said they would be prepared to pay to use facilities if this meant they could remain open.

"The charge will be 20p and the payment machine installed on the front door to the facilities."
