The good and bad news have been announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) about drinking water and sanitation.

The good news is that the target of cutting by half the number of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water has been met well in advance of the 2015 deadline.

The bad news is that 1.1 billion people still don't have toilets.
