These pictures were submitted by an independent contributor. He writes: "In recent months, London's Westminster City Council has been providing portable outdoor urinals in various popular locations around the centre of London - e.g., Soho, near clubs and pubs. This is to act as a deterrent to people relieving themselves in doorways or against a wall late at night when the pubs and clubs close. The urinals are removed during the daytime for emptying and cleaning and are brought back again late afternoon."
