VANDALS have torn off doors from public toilets at Capalaba Regional Park, with works underway by Redland City Council to fix the damage.

A council spokesperson said doors to two disabled toilets had been fixed since the toilet block was targeted on the evening of Thursday, November 1. 

Eight toilets remained without doors on Tuesday, November 6, with council earlier advising that doors would be replaced by mid-this week.

The wilful damage incident has come after $65,000 damage to nearby Coolwynpin State School was caused in February after vandals smashed 47 windows there.

This was after eggs, paint and custard were thrown and taps turned on in an After School Care building at the school in October 2016, causing $40,000 damage, with property also stolen.
