I live by the canal at Feniscowles, Blackburn, which could be a local beauty spot if it was not marred by bags of dog poo. In defence of dog owners though, there is not one bin.

This does not give owners the right to just drop their mess, but if bins were provided, pet owners may use them.

After all most of the people do pick it up in the first place.

Surely three or four bins strategically placed along the route would be money well spent.
