Redbridge P&R toilet - a hand drier fault

Reported anonymously at 00:14, Mon 22 July 2019

On Sunday 22 July @ about 5pm Redbridge P&R toilet - one of the hand driers is spitting sparks or carbon. There is definitely a fault in the machine and after a few minutes smells of burning. It might be unsafe or cause a fire. I hate to suggest it but, in this litigious world where people make false claims for anything it might tempt someone might make a fraudulent claim against the council for burns or electrocution. I don't approve of stupid selfish behaviour like this and I don't think the issue is that bad but it made my hands black with spots of soot from sparks, rather than just dry them. I had to wash my hands again and dry them on my trousers! Not so helpful and a bit irritating.
