Fines given for fouling

No fouling.
No fouling.

Wyre Council handed eight fines to people who allowed their dogs to foul in public and then failed to pick up after them last year, it was revealed.

A Freedom of Information request made by resident Joanna Barlow also found 491 complaints about dirty dog owners were lodged in 2014/15.

Nobody was prosecuted at Magistrates’ Court for the offence, which can be reported by residents on the council’s website.
