Help combat littering, dog-fouling and fly-tipping in Fenland

People in the Fens are being urged to identify hotspot areas for crimes such as littering, dog-fouling and fly-tipping.
Fenland District Council has launched a new Tidy Fenland campaign. Intelligence will be used by enforcement patrols who will dish out fines to offenders.
The campaign also coincides with new antisocial behaviour powers that have come into force in Fenland to tackle dog fouling and encourage responsible dog ownership.
Anyone caught breaching the new dog control Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) will face Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) of £75 (£65 if paid within 21 days), or be taken to court.
Cleaning the area costs Fenland £1,000 a day. The hopes people will get in touch to help identify where action is needed.
