Communities plagued by dog fouling in their parks and open spaces will find warning signs an effective deterrent.

This is certainly the case at Newton Park, in Ayr, which has erected warning signs to alert the area's users to the dangers of leaving dog mess.

The Ayrshire Post reports that one park user had discovered 550 piles of dog doo-doo in only eight days, prompting swift action to be taken.

A community volunteer initiative, Friends of Newton Park, worked with the local council's awareness campaign to eradicate the problem that is blighting towns and villages.

The message from them is simple: zero tolerance.

"Dog fouling will not be tolerated and there is simply no excuse for not clearing up after your dog," Peter Convery, the local authority's environment spokesperson, told the newspaper.

"There are plenty of bins to deposit the waste and thanks to improved signage and our eye-catching pavement stencils, the message is clear for all to see," he added.

The Directgov website advises people who spot dog fouling to report it to their local authority.
