Dog fouling a primary concern in north Norfolk
Artwork designed by children and warning of the dangers of disease is to be stuck on the side of waste collection lorries in an effort to shame dog owners into cleaning up after their pets.
The 'dog poosters' have been created by pupils at Neatishead, North Walsham Junior, Millfield, Sheringham and Little Snoring primary schools.
They highlight the dangers of disease spread by dog fouling, encourage people to bag and bin their dog's mess and point out the law governing the clearing up of dog waste.
The pupils' work has been turned into small posters to be put up around schools, larger A2 boards to be put up in the vicinity of schools and signage for some of the district's bin collection lorries.
Each school produced three winning designs.
