Dogs to be barred from Longleat estate

Dogs are to be banned from the inner region of the Longleat estate in Wiltshire amid health and safety concerns.

Officials at the estate have informed dog walkers that their animals pose a danger to children and the animals kept on-site, while recent security breaches were also used as justification for the action, reports the BBC.

Speaking to the news provider, Longleat chief executive David Bradley said: "One of the biggest problems we've had in the formal grounds and gardens is dog mess."

Recently, the Gazette and Herald reported that dog walkers in Corsham have been told to take note of warning signs in the area and clean up the mess left by their pet. Walkers also face the risk of a maximum £1,000 fine if they do not do so.

Mr Bradley continued by saying that a number of dog attacks on children have also played a role in their decision to limit the animals' access to the premises.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801318345-ADNFCR
