Traffic wardens could give dog mess fines

Traffic wardens could be given the power to hand out fines to owners who do not clear up dog mess.

Mally Boatman, an East Riding of Yorkshire councillor, said the measure would help tackle the problem.

He said he regularly receives complaints about dog fouling and felt something had to be done.

Councillors are set to view the proposal at a committee stage.
