It could be March 2024 before disabled toilet facilities return to an Inverness park it has been revealed.

Last week the facility in Whin Park was closed after it was targeted by vandals causing what was described as "extensive" damage.

However Highland Council has said that it would not be repaired because the wider area is due to be redeveloped at some point over the next two years.

A council spokesperson said: “Preparations are ongoing for the Whin Park project to be undertaken over the next two financial years by the end of March 2024.

“We are unable to confirm when the disabled toilets will be reinstated at Whin Park at this time – there are still, however, currently functioning ladies and gents toilets.”
