A number of signs have appeared in a north Norfolk village following an outbreak of dog poo being left on pavements close to a primary school.
It has been just over a week since children returned to school for the beginning of another year but already parents in Cawston, between Reepham and Aylsham, have been faced with an unpleasant issue.
On Monday, September 9, a number of dog deposits were left on Howard's Way and Jubilee Close - just metres away from where families enter and exit Cawston CoE Primary Academy for dropping-off and collecting pupils.
