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.

"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."
