A council chief involved in closing public toilets has been left “embarrassed” after he was caught urinating in the street by police.
South Lanarkshire Council’s deputy leader, Jackie Burns, was spotted in the act in Hamilton town centre and was issued a £40 fixed penalty notice by police.
The incident, which happened on Saturday, came just months after the Labour councillor oversaw the closure of public toilets in his council area.
