I read an article in the News regarding on the spot fines for dog owners failing to pick up their dog's mess. I live on the main Hagley Road in Hasbury immediately opposite the Rose and Crown pub, and we are constantly plagued by large amounts of dog mess outside our houses.

Why doesn't anyone see them! We need cameras to catch them. These owners let their dogs foul right outside our gates sometimes and on occasions we have stepped in it before we have seen it.

Where are the wardens for Halesowen fining these owners? It happens mainly in the early morning but sometimes in broad day light in middle of the day.
