Arun District Council has said it is appealing for information after a 'spate of vandalism' caused damage to five public toilets in the district.

Damage occurred to public toilets in Bedford Street, London Road, Waterloo Square and Regis Centre toilets in Bognor Regis and in Sandy Road, Pagham.

The council said that its properties and estates team repaired normal seasonal service was restored quickly.

Councillor Stephen Haymes, Arun District Council's cabinet member for technical services, said: “It’s very disappointing that a number of our valued public toilets in the district have become a regular target for vandals.

“This not only costs the taxpayer, but also inconveniences our customers as the toilets have to be closed whilst essential repairs are carried out.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed anything suspicious at these locations to report it, and I would urge anyone involved in vandalism to think again about the

impact of their actions.”

Anyone with information can contact Sussex Police on the non-emergency 101number, or report it online via www.sussex.police.uk/contact-us/report-online/
