standard.co.uk - City Toilet Finder, launched by the City of London Corporation, highlights pubs, restaurants and even City firms that will let you use their facilities without buying anything.

The software, which City bosses hope will stop people doing their business in the street, uses GPS to turn your phone into an augmented reality loo finder.

With 100 toilets signed up to the scheme in the Square Mile, the City claims users will never be more than five minutes' walk away from the nearest one.

A number of other London councils run similar schemes, but rely on users spotting signs displayed in windows.
