Thaxted parish councillors have urged the public to report vandalism after a spate of damage to new toilets.
A recently refurbished set of public toilets, which opened in late April, had to be closed on Sunday, May 23 after they were damaged.
Parish councillors said smashed crockery was forced down the toilet.
This had to be unpicked from a pump by hand, while council contractors had to repair new hand dryers.
Terry Frostick, Parish Council chair said: "Whatever people do to Thaxted's assets costs money, which they pay through council tax.

"Somebody has to pay for public toilets, so when damage takes place, many people lose money to spend on themselves."
"Whatever it is, report it when you see it," Terry said.
