A woman from Royston, Hertfordshire, has spoken of her disgust after being confronted by a carpet of dog poo.
Lynsey Langdon almost fell into the mess when she walked past a bus stop on Monday morning.
She said: “It looked like a horse had done it. It’s terrible.
“What if a child was there and fell in it? I’m a dog owner myself, but I take responsibility for my dog, she’s a working cocker and she goes on really good walks, but I don’t let her off the lead on the Heath.
“I think there is a problem with some people not controlling their dogs in general.
People think they can get away with it – I’ve seen people checking that no one is about then walking away from their dog’s mess.”
