Measures to combat vandalism at toilets in a north Norfolk town will be discussed by councillors.

Next Monday's meeting of Holt Town Council will agree a way forward for the Church Street toilets.

Gemma Harrison, Holt town clerk, said: "The Church Street toilets have been subject to vandalism on and off for a long time.

You may also want to watch:

"The vandalism is varied from damaging toilets and pipework, to litter, toilet roll being thrown around and excrement being spread around.

"The police are involved and have made it a priority to patrol the toilets daily. Although the vandalism has decreased it is still happening.

"Councillors will be discussing a number of preventative measures such as CCTV and better gates. I hope to get permission from councillors to investigate improving the toilets through grant funding. Fundamentally, they need redesigning to be more open and it would be great to incorporate a disabled toilet and baby-changing unit."
