Two public toilets in Margate will be shut by a council today following “constant abuse” of its staff and issues with drugs and alcohol.
Thanet District Council says the loos in College Walk near Iceland and another in The Centre are also routinely damaged.
A decision has been made to close them until further notice.
The authority said in a statement: ““Growing problems with anti-social behaviour mean that, from 1 December 2017, the public toilets at College Walk and the Centre in Margate (next to Peacocks) will be closed until further notice.
“This decision has been made in light of constant abuse of council staff, drug and alcohol misuse and continuous damage to the facilities.
“This has required considerable additional resource to cover cleaning and repair bills and, has had a detrimental impact on the safety of our staff, other toilet users and nearby properties.”
