The Times reports: "VOLUNTEERS at a community centre are getting bogged down with the theft of toilet rolls from their building. As many as 15 rolls are being taken from Whitstable Umbrella Centre each week."
According to the Times, "Staff lifted the lid on the losses in the hope of sniffing out the culprits and persuading them to stop. Otherwise, they warn, they will have to lock their loos."
Centre manager Rob Isted tells the Times: "If it's about 20p a roll and we're losing 12 to 15 rolls a week, that's about £150 a year."
A glum looking Isted is pictured at the scene of the crime pointing at an empty bog roll holder.
