Public toilets have been targeted by vandals again.

The disabled facilities at Worthing Pier and in High Street have been temporarily closed after being damaged.

Worthing Borough Council said the newly-opened disabled facility at High Street multi-storey car park was vandalised on Monday, while the facility at the pier was damaged on Tuesday.

A council spokesman said: “Our teams are working to have both facilities reopened as soon as possible. In the meantime, people in need of a disabled facility can use the nearby ones at the lido and opposite the Dome Cinema on the promenade.

“The Changing Places facility remains open at High Street multi-storey car park.”

It is not the first time facilities have been damaged in the town with instances of vandalism happening several times in the last year.

In January, the Changing Places facility opposite the Dome Cinema on the promenade was broken into and had its toilet bowl smashed.

The toilet also had to be closed in November after it was damaged.

“The acts of vandalism follow a frustrating series of attacks in the last year, which are not only leaving our residents and visitors temporarily with fewer facilities, but also costing us thousands of pounds in repairs,” a council spokesman said.

“We will continue to notify Sussex Police of the attacks and support efforts to crackdown on the vandalism of our public facilities.”
