Diss public toilets closed by arson attack
A toilet block in Diss has been closed following a suspected arson attack.
Two fire crews were called to the public loos in Mere's Mouth after a blaze was started in the men's toilets at about 5.45pm on Wednesday.
The fire has meant that the South Norfolk Council operated toilets will be closed for a week.
Local district councillor Tony Palmer called on the public to be extra vigilant after what he called another act of 'mindless vandalism' hit Diss.
'Nazi and fascist graffiti on the back of the toilet block, the park pavilion and on the East Anglia's Children's Hospice premises and now this fire which will shut the toilets for a week while they are repaired.'
'It's got to stop and I would ask the public to join with us and the police in being vigilant and reporting any suspicious behaviour they see.'
