All the public toilets in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, had to be closed following a spate of thefts that saw all the sinks from the facility being stripped by scrap metal thieves, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
East Lindsey District Council has been forced to close the toilets on Brooks Walk in Wainfleet until they can replace the four wash basins which have been stolen.
Council spokesman, James Gilbert, said the toilets will remain closed to the public until the sinks can be replaced.
He said: "We think they will have to be closed for two weeks.
"The sinks were the stainless steel kind so it is possible they were stolen for their scrap metal value.
"The pipe work has also been damaged.
"The council is looking at options to replace the sinks in a material which is less attractive to thieves, while still being affordable."
