Wrekin toilet block to be demolished

A disused toilet block at a Shropshire beauty spot is to be demolished after attracting anti-social behaviour and proving impossible to restore, a council says.

The block at the bottom of The Wrekin has been closed for more than 10 years.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust said there was a need for toilets at the site as nearly 100,000 people climb The Wrekin every year.

Demolition work will start in November, Telford and Wrekin Council said.

The council said there had been many improvements made to the hill in the past few years but changes to the toilets had proved unsuccessful.

"The toilets have been closed for many years now with the disused building attracting anti-social behaviour at times," a spokesman said.

"It has been agreed that the toilet building will now be demolished.

"Work will start in early November."
