The mess was caused just days after teams worked tirelessly to prepare the coastline for the Bank Holiday weekend – cleaning benches, tidying shrub beds and preparing the reopening of the pier.

After weeks of bleak weather, Sunderland was finally able to enjoy some sunshine over the bank holiday weekend.

“Last night (Tuesday) somebody decided to use the toilet rolls out of the public toilets and make this mess along the promenade. Not only is this unacceptable behaviour, it also has a negative image on the environment and spoils it for people from visiting our beautiful seafront.
