Blankets clog toilets at airport's domestic departure lounge

The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (AATT) says it is making every effort to restore use of the washroom facilities at the Domestic Departure Lounge at the Piarco International Airport, after problems caused by people discarding blankets, cloths and other insoluble materials into the toilets.
