In a post on social media, the Wisbech Town Council say locks have been smashed off with rocks and hand dryers have been vandalised by the group.

A spokesman said: "The toilets in the park have been yet again vandalised by children. They smashed the locks off with rocks and then damaged the hand dryers.

"The toilets will be out of use until they can be fixed and we ask that parents please know where your children are and that they understand that damaging property is illegal."

One resident questioned the council, asking what evidence they have to prove the damage was caused by children, as per their online post.
