Dog mess fight

A CAMPAIGN to help rid Derbyshire of dog mess is being re-launched by the county council – and comes after we reported on problems on Acorn Drive in Belper.

The authority is providing weatherproof Yuk! signs which residents can display in a windows or attach to fences. The council said the signs will act as a reminder to any irresponsible dog owners to think of the health risks if they don’t clear up after their pets. You can get a sign from Belper Library, request one online at, or by ringing 08456 058 058 or 01629 533190.
