The Russian government has claimed that if he’s caught driving without his colander on he could have his licence taken away.
You can now buy a public toilet in London’s swanky Spitalfields area – but it’ll set you back £1million.
Don’t worry, you wouldn’t have to touch the manky old urinals. The underground venue has already been turned into a nightclub in the past.
But Public Life, as it was known back then, was closed down in 2012 following a police drugs raid.

CCTV footage shows an argument sparked by the driver asking one of the passengers to close an open door because it was raining.
It quickly gets heated and the front passenger tells Kris to stop being ‘rotten’.
While snowflakes appear white as they fall, they are in fact totally clear.
The ice though is not transparent like a sheet of glass is, but translucent meaning light only passes through indirectly.
