Horncastle target dog fouling issue

DOG fouling was one of the issues that was causing a stink at Horncastle Town Council’s monthly meeting last week.

Coun Steve Newton said: “Horncastle is one of the worst effected towns in East Lindsey for dog fouling so along with the dog warden we are going to try and target it and sort the problems out.”

Councillors did voice concerns however that the dog warden could be seen coming “a mile off” because her van was labelled and instantly recognisable and people would just wait until she had left to allow their dog to foul.
