'World's first toilet theme park' opens in South Korea

The Korean city of Suwon has opened what it says is "the world's first toilet theme park".

The Restroom Cultural Park has a museum displaying Roman style loos, European-style bedpans, and ancient Korean flush toilets, as well as fun facts about human waste and a sculpture garden dedicated to squatting figures.

The BBC's Seoul correspondent Lucy Williamson visited the park to explore South Korea's fascination with the art and routine of the water closet.
