Cleaner doesn’t feel safe at night

KERRY Clutterbuck said she was scared one morning while trying to clean the Lake Alford toilets and always took her son along because she didn’t feel safe.

While at the toilet block near the Bruce Highway she heard a man say “hello” but thought he was using the pay phone and went about her business.

Driving over to the Brisbane Road block she heard the man say “bye”, and the venom in his voice gave her a chill.

While cleaning the other amenities her son asked her how far off finishing she was.

He wanted to know because the man from before was walking down the path and had something in his hand; they left before he made it to them.

When she came back later there was an iron bar on the floor of the men’s toilets, he had hit the walls and bashed a hole through the sink.

Twice while cleaning she has found small detonators in toilet roll holders.

But Ms Clutterbuck admitted of all the region’s toilets, the One Mile public facilities were the worst.

She also said having unisex toilets at Nelson Reserve with doors that didn’t go all the way to the floor and the roof was worrying.
