Appeal for information after vandals target public toilets


toilet sign Arun District Council is appealing for information after a spate of vandalism caused damage to five public toilets in the district.

The damage occurred at Bedford Street, London Road, Waterloo Square and Regis Centre toilets in Bognor Regis, and also in Sandy Road in Pagham.

The Council’s Properties and Estates team quickly repaired the toilets and normal seasonal service has been restored.

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 101 number, or report it online via
