A HORSHAM toilet block set to be demolished as part of the city's town hall redevelopment has copped an early battering.
Horsham police believe a vehicle backed into the Pynsent Street toilet block wall near the women's entrance overnight.
Horsham Rural City Council staff received an early wake-up call after security and cleaners noticed the brick wall had been breached about 4.30am.
Police attended shortly afterwards.
The area has been fenced off.
Council technical services director John Martin said signs would direct people towards the nearest alternative toilets.
"The two nearest alternatives are at Roberts Avenue, at the corner of Firebrace Street, and in the Woolworths carpark on the corner of Darlot and Wilson Streets," he said.
He said council would decide whether the toilet block would be demolished ahead of schedule after an inspection.
Acting Sergeant Chris van Burren asked anybody with information to call Horsham Police Station on 5382 9200.
