Sign of the times in Downham Market

Fuming Downham residents have expressed their anger at a persistent dog mess issue in the town by creating a series of ad hoc laminated signs that have been hung around town from trees and other vantage points.

One sign, pictured here, was taken on Grimshoe Road in Downham.

It says: "Can you please pick up your dog poo. You should be ashamed of yourselves."

This is not the first time dog walkers have come under fire. In February, it was reported that dog bags had been slung carelessly outside of Hillcrest Primary School.

One Facebook user said: "I am disabled and walking along with crutches it is difficult to navigate around all the dog mess."

Another said: "They should be named and shamed."

A similar approach has been taken in Lynn, with locals calling for dog walkers to be named on social media.
