Toilet Paper Stolen from UK Church Amid Coronavirus Panic-Buying

As panic-buying of various products intensifies worldwide because of the global coronavirus pandemic, a church in the U.K. says its toilet paper has been stolen.

The church warden at St. Mary and St. Margaret’s Church in Sprowston, Norwich, said she discovered two Sundays ago all of their paper rolls were gone, according to multiple news reports.

The church restrooms are open to the public every day of the week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., usually used by those visiting the cemetery and for community group meetings.

“We keep the church open for people to use it. My anxiety is that if anyone needs the loo the facilities are available for them,” the Rev. Canon Simon Stokes, told the Norwich Evening News.

He continued, “It does seem that people are very fearful and frightened and that seems to be catching.”

“People are stockpiling different things. You can put two and two together and make five but my assumption is it is linked to coronavirus, but who knows.”

Despite the theft, the church continues to keep its facilities open to the public.
