Please remember the Countryside Code:

‘Keep dogs on a lead at all times near farm animals – by law you’re obliged to keep your dog under control.

A person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after their dog has fouled in a public place. Failure to do so may lead to a fine or prosecution in court.

Not disposing a ‘poo’ bag correctly is also a dog fouling and littering offence.
