One of Beijing’s busiest public toilets is fighting back against loo roll criminals.

The toilet is tired of patrons stealing their toilet paper and will now only give out loo roll only to patrons who use a face scanner.

The automated facial recognition dispenser comes as a response to elderly residents removing large amounts of toilet paper for use at home.

Now, those in need of paper must stand in front of a high-definition camera for three seconds. Following a successful photo a 60cm ration is released.

Those who come too often will be denied, and everyone must wait nine minutes before they can use the machine again.

China seems to like its public toilets. The government recently allocated £233bn to fund a “toilet revolution”, renovating as many as 100,000 public bathrooms in the hopes of boosting tourism.
