Tranent’s public toilets have been severely vandalised resulting in them being closed temporarily.

The toilets were allegedly vandalised over the weekend and again yesterday (Wednesday).

Vandalism included setting fire to bins, deliberate blocking of drains and damage to doors.

An East Lothian Council spokesperson said: “The Tranent toilets have been subjected to a number of incidents of vandalism over the past week which has resulted in them having to close for repairs and to replace damaged items.

“The vandalism has included setting light to bins which could have had serious consequences had this not be spotted in time.”
