A CHAIN of motorway service stations is flushed with success after winning the Loo of the Year award.
Moto service stations won the accolade after judges secretly visited more than 1,000 public toilets across the UK.
It is the fourth year in a row that the group has cleaned up at the awards.
Moto's sites include one at Woolley Edge on the M1 and a site at Birch, north of Manchester, on the M62.
Brian Larkin, Moto's operations director, said: "To be declared has having the best loos in Britain is quite an achievement in an industry like ours, where about 100m people a year use our toilets.
"They are open round the clock every day of the year, so keeping them clean is a mammoth task.
"This accolade and all the individual awards we've been given is a glowing tribute to the hard work of our cleaning teams."
Judges checked the toilets for cleanliness, overall management, signs, accessibility, decor and fixtures and fittings.
Awards director Richard Chisnell said: "Washroom standards are getting better.
"Standards are rising in many parts of the UK and loo providers - as well as the dedicated cleaners looking after toilets - deserve all the recognition we can give them.
"They're helping to put the sparkle back into Britain."
This year's awards were sponsored by Armitage Shanks, the British Cleaning Council, Cannon Hygiene, SCA Hygiene Products and Technical Concepts.
