DNA taken from 31,000-year-old human teeth reveals a new ethnic group that was living in 'extreme' conditions in Siberia during the last Ice Age The breakthrough came when two children's milk teeth were found buried deep in a remote archaeological site in north eastern Siberia. It comes as part of a wider study which also discovered 10,000-year-old human remains in another site in Siberia.

The area is now feeling the consequences of overtourism, all because of one boat shed.

"There has been an increase over the past few years of visitors to this area, with tour buses as well as self-driven visitors stopping here for photo opportunities," Perth city council said.

"The closest public facility is located at the Narrows Gardens which is 2.4 kilometres [1.5 miles] away."

Many visitors to the area try to use the toilets in a nearby restaurant, Zafferano's, but the manager has become increasingly aggravated by the situation.

"The manager of this restaurant has raised several complaints, as these visitors are disrupting his regular business and the patronage to it," the minutes from the most recent city council meeting state.

So, the council has decided to build new toilets, specifically for the people visiting the boat shed, and it has been deemed a "priority."

"The construction of the proposed facility, with appropriate signage at strategic locations, will allow visitors to the area the respite they need, without exhausting the current business facility's capacity," the minutes read.

The toilets will be Perth's first "stand-alone" toilet facility powered by solar power.
