Warning signs told abusive man about beach dog ban
Posted by Jason Nicholls.
Warning signs have been put up on a beach in Tyneside to inform walkers that dogs are not allowed on it, but this has not stopped one man from abusing a council officer who informed him about it.
Dogs are banned on South Tyneside beaches from 8am to 6pm from May to September, the Shields Gazette reported. The move is to stop them being fouled.
Several warning signs are in place on the coastline to inform walkers, the newspaper said.
The 21-year-old man was approached by a dog warden and, later, a police officer when he was spotted walking his animal on Sandhaven Beach in July this year.
After being asked to leave, the man became threatening and abusive and made hand gestures.
Handed a fixed penalty notice, the man simply ripped it up and threw it to the ground.
He was fined £175 and ordered to pay £115 costs by South Tyneside magistrates.
Sandhaven is a popular beach and holds the yellow and blue Seaside Flag Award for its cleanliness and safety.
