A MCDONALD'S restaurant has cleaned up at the annual national Loo of the Year Awards.

Dartford's Spital Street restaurant fought off competition from thousands of other loo-sing toilets to become one of only 25 British restaurants to be awarded five stars for its conveniences.

Entrants were judged on a wide range of criteria, including signage, décor, fixtures and fittings, air quality and cleanliness.

Restaurant franchisee Paul Shaw said: "My team and I are over the moon about winning this award. We believe that everyone deserves clean, safe and well-appointed toilet facilities.

"We ensure that these high standards are across the board, catering for everyone including disabled visitors and parents with small children."
