A first-time homeowner says her new property has already been devalued after a toilet was left "dumped" on her street.

The toilet is at the junction of Melody Road and Whitby Close in Biggin Hill - and Transport for London is believed to have installed it.

"I was at work and saw it on Facebook and thought the image was photoshopped," Stephanie Willis, 33, told News Shopper.

"I laughed at first. Then I read the comments and thought ‘oh my god this is real.’"

She contacted Bromley Council and claimed they know nothing about the toilet, which is believed to have been erected on Tuesday (December 4).

Some suggest the toilet is for drivers of the R2 bus, but neither TfL or Bromley Council had provided comment to News Shopper at the time of publishing.

However, in a letter seen by News Shopper, Bromley Council informed a resident hat TfL was responsible for the toilet. 

The e-mail read: "I understand that this facility has been installed by TfL under permitted development rights available to them as a bus operator, and therefore this is a development for which no planning permission is required." 

UPDATE - Resident furious after toilet left dumped on road in Biggin Hill

Stephanie, who only bought the home in February, added: "I am furious. It has a PIN so it is probably for bus drivers because it isn’t public.

"In the summer it will be smelly, will attract rats and criminal activity. The glass window has already been smashed."

The angry resident, who believes it looks like something from Doctor Who, said neighbours were not informed this would happen.

We will update this story once more information about the mysterious toilet comes our way.
