The price of a dog licence fee will rise from £5 to £12.50 on Monday.

Those aged over 65 will not have to pay to keep one dog, although any additional dogs will cost £5 each.

There will also be a reduced fee of £5 for those on income-related benefits and owners of dogs that have been neutered.

Councils said the increase reflects the high cost of providing a dog control service.
