London, Sep 4 (ANI): A 73-year-old pensioner converted a phone booth cubicle in to a loo after he found the abandoned box in Somerset.
John Long, retired salesman, from Taunton, Somerset, fitted the telephone box with a porcelain lavatory pan, hand basin, high-level cistern, frosted glass panes, a heater and a red tennis ball on the end of the lavatory chain.
"I've wanted a red telephone box for years and I didn't have an outside lavatory, so I thought I could combine the two. To be honest, I probably use it more often than the internal lavatory now. It's just so convenient," the Telegraph quoted John as saying."I took a pan to a red telephone kiosk down the road, sat on it, hoping and praying no one would come along and take me off to a nut house," he added.
The red telephone box regularly tops polls as one of Britain's most iconic structures, even though their number is constantly decreasing. (ANI)
