A council chief involved in closing public toilets has been left "embarrassed" after he was caught urinating in the street by police.
The incident, which happened on Saturday, came just months after the Labour councillor oversaw the closure of public toilets in his council area.
He said: "I was in a taxi rank at the Bottom Cross in Hamilton and needed the toilet.
SNP councillor for Larkhall ward, Peter Craig, said: "It's a very embarrassing situation, especially for someone in Jackie's position.
"The community council have been trying to keep the public toilets open, especially for anyone with disabilities.
This just goes to show that it's not only an embarrassing issue, but that we're in need of public toilets.
South Lanarkshire Council later granted a three-month reprieve for the toilets following the petition, but eventually closed the toilets indefinitely. »
