Council Sprays Dog Mess Green

Piles of dog mess have been spray-painted bright green by a Dorset council to try to shock owners into picking up their pets' waste.

Poole council took the action after about 200 piles of mess were found in an alley near Poole High School.

Workers are still cleaning mess on the paths but any piles on the grass verges in the area will be painted and, if not removed, cleared up after a week.

Opposition councillor Brian Clements said it was a "bizarre thing to do".
