BACKWELL residents are being urged to make sure they clear up after their dogs after complaints were made about the issue.

The parish council has been told by a number of people that dog poo is being left in the village.

The problem seems to be most prolific around West Leigh Infants School, Westfield Road and Waverley Road.

Now, the council wants to ensure all dog owners use the bins provided for their pooches' poo.

A council spokesman said: "Unfortunately this situation gives our four legged friends and their owners a bad press.

"There is also a danger to children if they come into contact with dog faeces as well as it being unpleasant to the general public.
