A town mayor has hit out at vandals after a number of costly incidents in the public toilet at a recreation ground.

The toilets at King's Field in Aldeburgh have been repeatedly targeted by vandals, with the first incident taking place the weekend they were opened. 

And just last week another incident took place where damage was caused to a wall-mounted baby changing table, which appeared to have been pulled from the wall.

Kevin Webster, Aldeburgh mayor, said: "This is unfortunately not the first time that the public toilets at Kings Field have been vandalised. 

"We had vandalism the weekend they opened and have suffered similarly on a number of occasions since then, which has cost us significant sums.

"We have also had to close them on occasion due to vandalism which causes an inconvenience for the public.

"We have reported the incident to the police under crime reference DP-53739-23-3737-01 and would ask that if anyone has any information that they please contact the police." 

King's Field is the town's largest recreational area with an outdoor gym, play equipment and a playground area.
