TWO public loos in Peebles are currently closed for repair work after they were targeted by vandals.

Between 6pm on Friday and 9am on Saturday, toilet seats and a handwashing unit were damaged in School Brae.

And between 6pm on Saturday and 9am on Sunday, toilet seats and a toilet bowl were smashed at the loos in East Station car park.

Both facilities will now be closed until repairs are made.

Community sergeant Duncan Marker said: "Malicious acts of vandalism like this not only have a damaging effect on the community, but also those visiting the town. 

"I would encourage anyone who may know anything about these mindless acts to pass this on to either police or Crimestoppers."

Anyone who may have information about these incidents can call Peebles Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 1930 of November 19, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
