Parish councillors are flagging up dog poo to shame irresponsible dog owners.

Lynn Robinson and Gill Winsor have been sticking flags into unsightly piles left in Snoreham Gardens, Latchingdon.

They found four deposits near the entrance in one day last month, and more on the field, so stuck flags in them then uploaded a photo onto Latchingdon Parish Council’s Facebook page.

It seems to have done the trick.

Mrs Robinson said: “So far there has been no more dog litter in the areas we put the flags and hopefully it will stay that way.”
