A reader poll found that 2934 people were opposed to unisex toilets in schools, where there was no single sex alternative.

There were 171 people –six per cent – who agreed that unisex only toilets were acceptable.

The poll took the view of readers, after parents and pupils at Culloden Academy found out there were only to be unisex toilets in the school.

Parents raised their concern as they had not been consulted on the plan, and they had not been told it was going to be in place for pupils.

Staff were not even aware of the plan, ahead of school opening last week.

The council has since said the unisex toilets were only as an "interim" measure and from today, Monday, male and female toilets are now available.
