A parish council in Preston has called for a crackdown on dog fouling.

Broughton is being plagued by dog poo according to the Parish Council.

A statement from the council said Broughton High School’s grounds was suffering an “acute situation” due to owners not picking up after their dogs.

A spokesman for the council said: “Sadly some Dog Walker’s in Broughton are not being very friendly towards other Parishoner’s, in that they do not pick up Dog droppings whilst walking their animals around the village.
The situation is also rather acute with the grounds of Broughton High School.

“The High School land is of course not designated a Public Footpath, nor sanctioned for Dog Walking.

“The Parish Council asks that consideration be shown by all Dog Walker’s towards their fellow Parishoner’s within the village. Please tidy up after you Dog, and place the bag in one of the many bins around the village.”
