People are now ditching toilet roll for a more eco-friendly option.

A new trend has seen people buying reusable toilet roll, claiming they are cheaper and more eco-friendly, and instead of flushing down the cloth after using it, they simply go into a basket to be washed and used again, the Mirror Online reported.

One mum, who introduced her children to the cloths, told Buzzfeed: "So far, it's wonderful, and I can't imagine going back.

"In my mind, buying and using disposable toilet paper was literally flushing money down the toilet.

"If you're wondering, 'Why would you want to reuse something that you wipe your genitals with?'

"I'd answer this question with my own question, 'Do you throw away your underpants after each use?'"

However, the idea of reusable toilet paper has had a mixed response from other people.

A couple who were filmed having sex on a beach in Thailand could face a prison sentence.

Police have launched a hunt for the tourists who couldn't resist but get intimate on Dongtan Beach after a night of partying, the Metro newspaper reported.

Although the identities of the couple are unknown, police believe they are of Western origin. In the video, the woman can be seen lying on her back while the man stands over her.

Onlookers say that thy couple had sex for around three minutes before people started shouting at them, and they ran away down the beach.

Police Colonel Apichai Krobpetch, superintendent at Pattaya Police Station, said: "This happened in a public place where many tourists go to relax.

"The scene is in front of the Pattaya Marine Rescue Center. I do not know where the tourists come from, but officers are pursuing them in order to protect the reputation of the area.

"Police will investigate this and prosecute the people involved. This is very negative for the area.

"We have spoken to many witnesses as we are pursuing the offenders. It is a crime to have sex in public like this, and they will be punished."

If the couple are caught, they could face a fine of 5,000 baht (PS115) and could even be sent to prison.
