Plans to tackle dog fouling in Pocklington

Pocklington Town Council is considering buying a portable CCTV camera to help trace dog owners who do not clean up after their pets.

Several years ago the council placed new waste bins throughout the town, but, despite this, there is still a problem. Councillors are aware it is only a minority of dog owners that choose not to pick up waste, but feel the offenders should be prosecuted.
