'Reckless' arson attack on promenade toilet block

An investigation is under way into a "reckless" arson attack on a toilet block on Peel Promenade, Isle of Man Police have said.

Vandals entered the toilet at the back of the bowling green cafe on Saturday night and set fire to a plastic bin.

The resulting fire caused extensive damage to the bin, walls and ceiling.

"This act of arson was a reckless and dangerous act and had the potential to burn down the whole cafe block causing serious damage," said a spokesman.
