BIZARRE videos analysing the flushing power of various public toilets in Dymchurch have been posted on YouTube.

A couple visited the Marsh and spent time assessing and recording the merits of the male, female and disabled facilities, as well as the toilets at the village's Neptune Inn pub.

The man who posted the clips, called Dan, said he had "an interest in plumbing and toilets".

He has also compiled videos of flushing toilets in other coastal resorts such as Hastings and St Leonards, as well as in fast-food outlets, at train stations and in pubs.

He compares the makes and models of the toilets, discussing cisterns and push buttons, as well as assessing their power and ability to flush paper.

Some of the videos last about two minutes and show what the rest of the cubicle looks like and how long it takes the toilet to recover for its next flush.

Describing one of the videos, Dan wrote: "Today me and my other half went down to Dymchurch for the day and done some toilet hunting."

Describing the Neptune's facilities, he said: "Here we have a Barrhead pan (my first-ever Barrhead that I filmed for my channel) with a Trent cistern and the flush is average."

His videos have received 3,200 views and have attracted several comments from users.

One viewer heaped praise on the Dymchurch facilities, writing: "Love bowl shape, good flush also."
