A vicar has complained after being shocked by a recorded female voice in a Shropshire lavatory.

Entering the public lavatory and unbuckling his belt the vicar was startled to hear a female voice call out "welcome!". Residents are now calling in to question the necessity of a recorded speaking voice at all when using the facilities.

"A vicar who popped into a public lavatory was so shocked by the recorded message of a female voice saying ‘welcome’ he has complained to the town council that he thought a woman had followed him in."
