Warehouse installs European-style squat toilet because foreign workers ‘kept breaking the loo by standing on it’

European style?

A warehouse in Swindon, UK, has installed a “hole-in-the-ground” toilet to cater for foreign workers, according to reports.

Employees from eastern Europe apparently prefer squatting while using the loo, prompting managers to order a new toilet to match their requirements.

Bosses at the DHL warehouse are also said to be infuriated after workers broke the traditional loo seat by squatting on it.

The distribution centre in Swindon, which transports goods for B&Q, has spent thousands of pounds on the new facility, according to The Sun.

Managers had previously installed signs instructing employees not to squat on the toilet.

A source told the paper: “Staff have been fed up with the toilet seats breaking and workers leaving a mess.”

DHL did not respond to a request for comment.
