The public are being urged to help identify dirty dog owners messing up a popular town park.
The roads leading to Fearns Field in the Suffield Park area of Cromer are repeatedly being contaminated by dog poo, with 15 deposits discovered in one morning last week. The park, a favourite spot for children to play, is also suffering from dog fouling.
The crackdown is the latest move in North Norfolk District Council's (NNDC) No Messing campaign.
Cabinet member for environment Angie Fitch-Tillett said: 'We have patrols all through the day trying to check on dog fouling and trying to identify the owners responsible for this. But we don't have enough people to cover every foot of the roads and park at every moment of the day and night.
'So we're calling on the communities of Cromer to help us help them. If you know who's doing this, please tell us. If you see someone letting their dog foul and not picking up, report it with as much detail about the owner and the dog.'
