Nobody wants to have to use a portable loo.
They smell, and aren’t the most comfortable places to relieve yourself.
Spare an extra thought for this poor Devon woman, then, who found herself trapped in a moving Portaloo while at a Devon beer festival.
The unnamed young lady had popped to the bathroom while at last weekend’s Abbfest – a beer, food and music shindig in Newton Abbot.
The situation unfolded after security staff had been called in to move the Portaloos elsewhere so that emergency vehicles could attend an incident.
Unfortunately, the woman was still inside.
She screamed when she suddenly found herself being transported while contained in the plastic toilet .
Organisers were apparently a little embarrassed by the whole debacle.
“We went to move the ladies toilets, and despite checking and calling we got no response,” the chairman of the event, David Munden, told the Plymouth Herald .
“So they moved the toilet out to let the ambulance in, and when it moved she screamed and said she was locked in it.
“They released her and luckily she saw the funny side of it.
“We have to make the toilets moveable because of letting emergency vehicles in.
“We have some very strong security staff.”
We’re happy the woman the funny side – though imagine she probably wouldn’t have had the whole thing ended up a little more messily.
