8:59 pm on 1 December 2014

A man in the Dutch city of Amsterdam has been injured after a pop-up public toilet sunk into the ground emerged unexpectedly.

He was hit by a scooter thrown in the air as the toilet suddenly materialised.

He is being treated in hospital for minor injuries.

The toilets are a feature of central areas of Amsterdam, emerging at night to deter people from urinating in the streets.
