SEXUAL activities in a public toilet block are harming a town’s image, a community leader has warned.
Police have received complaints about men meeting for sex at the New Street car park toilets, Mold, and have vowed to step up its enforcement procedures if the incidents continue.
Cllr Geoff Collett, Mayor of Mold, said the image of the town could be affected if people visited the town centre toilets and found other people were having sex there.
“From my own experience of using those toilets I have never seen anything like this taking place,” he said.
“However, people seeing sexual activity in our toilets is not good for the image of our town and we do not want it taking place there.
North Wales Police diversity officer Gary Robertshaw said complaints had been received about activities at the toilets.
He said: “North Wales Police are currently taking action to dissuade any sexual activity in the toilets. This could include more patrols of the area which includes the deployment of high profile CCTV technology.”
PC Robertshaw said complaints had been received by residents and visitors.
“In response to this, men acting suspiciously may be stopped and requested to account for their presence in the toilet area,” added Pc Robertshaw.
Steve Jones, head of the Flintshire Council’s Streetscene department, said: “The council is not aware of any complaints in respect of the public convenience in New Street car park. However, contact will be made with North Wales Police to discuss the matter.”
