Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson after an incident at Sheringham.
Around £10,000 worth of damage was caused to the public toilet block at the town’s east promenade after arsonists set light to it.
The attack was discovered at around 6am on September 8.
Two 15-year-old males from the local area were arrested on Friday and have now been released on police conditional bail until November 1, pending further enquiries.
North Norfolk District Council chairman John Perry-Warnes officially opened the toilet block, located next to the Anglian Water pumping station, in mid-July.
It replaced the former block which was closed in 2006 due to being in a poor state of repair.
The new toilets were designed to have the appearance of beach huts, are fully Disability Discrimination Act compliant and include a shower, baby change and drinking water. They also feature environmentally friendly designs.
Sheringham Safer Neighbourhood Team will continue to patrol the east promenade area, monitoring the level of crime and anti social behaviour
They will also take positive action towards any offenders that are located and identified.
