Too close for comfort?
Intrigued by the chance to build closer links with a Beijing elementary school, headteacher Angela Piddock was being given a guided tour of the buildings when she was caught short. Staff showed her to the toilets but there was a surprise waiting. Not only were the facilities shared between teachers and pupils but, wait for it, there were no doors.
Ms Piddock said: "There was a curtain off the corridor, but then there were the toilets opposite each other with nothing covering them.
"I found that interesting, shall we say. It was a bit of an issue for me, but obviously not for the staff and children at the school."
