A PUBLIC toilet block in Holbeach had to be temporarily closed after vandals stole the cistern lids.

The damage to the toilets in Carter’s Park was discovered by park staff and the toilets were closed immediately.

The following day the lids were found on the toilet block roof.

Speaking at a meeting of Holbeach Parish Council, Coun Carol Johnson said there was no option but to close the toilets as the ballcocks were visible.

She said the vandals also targeted a bench in the park, which was damaged beyond repair.

She said they attempted to set the bench on fire.

Both incidents have been reported to the police, who are investigating.
