A glass-walled toilet sounds like the stuff of nightmares, but Glastonbury is offering the use of one for their 100,000 plus festival goers.

The 'Loo with a View' will thankfully not allow people outside to see in, but will feature a special mirrored glass which will allow the person inside to see out.

So, as you do your business you watch people checking themselves out in the mirror on the other side of the glass or, if they know what it is, pretending they can actually see you. 

Much craic is sure to ensue, although the purpose of the 'Loo with a View' is a little more serious.

It aims to raise awareness about the fact that a third of the world's population live without toilets and are forced to do their business out in the open.

WaterAid hope it will give the user some idea of what it might be like to have nowhere safe to use the loo.

The charity will also have a hygiene campaigner dressed as a 'WaterAid Poo' on site who hopes to get 40,000 signatures for a Make It Happen petition which aims to help everyone in the world have taps and toilets by 2030.
