An outdoor launderette is being unveiled in Wisbech today at the Horsefair Shopping Centre.

“We think a lot of local people will find this launderette very useful, especially as it will be open 24/7,” said a spokesman for the centre.

Offering users two different wash loads; eight kg and 18kg, as well as an 18kg dryer, the Revolution 24 outdoor washer costs between £2 and £8 to use.

However, one person said on social media: “That is one crazy idea.

“Love the concept but why would you want to pull out your dirty laundry in the middle of town?”

The first outdoor launderette of its kind opened in Nottingham in 2014.
