A council is investigating a spate of public toilet vandalism after excrement was smeared over its floor, walls and even inside the toilet roll holders.
Dover District Council is working with the police to identify those behind the 'very concerning' incidents which have occurred 12 times in five months.
It is happening at the male conveniences in Marine Road in Walmer, situated by the Cedar Surgery and Walmer Paddling Pool.
A DDC spokesman said: "There have been a number of incidents of faeces being smeared on facilities at the public toilets in Marine Road, Walmer, and we are investigating this, working in partnership with Kent Police.
"Our contractors have reported twelve incidents over the last five months, including excrement over the floor and walls, and smeared inside toilet roll holders.
"The toilets are inspected twice a day, and incidents are cleaned as soon as we are made aware of them. The costs of cleaning are included in the cleaning contract.
"These incidents are obviously very concerning for residents, visitors and staff, and we continue to work with police to investigate this matter.
"If anyone has information on these incidents, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or if you see acts of vandalism/criminal damage taking place, please contact the police."
