The Science Museum says it is considering a radical way of paying its hefty energy bills -- using visitors' poo.

The central London museum said it was considering taking the waste from its 14 toilet blocks and converting it into electricity.

"With free admission it would be a great way for visitors to give something back to the museum and help keep the overheads down," said the museum's head Jon Tucker. "We have almost 3 million visitors each year and have huge electricity bills."
