A new project on how to combat dog fouling will be explored by Cross Hills and Glusburn Dog Fouling Action Group at a special meeting at the OAP Rest Centre in Cross Hills, from 7.30pm on Monday.

It is being filmed by a BBC unit which is producing a programme on litter and dog fouling throughout the country and is due to be broadcast in the New Year.

The meeting will be attended by representatives from Craven council, the police, the local veterinary service and related businesses.

Jill Hirst, one of the founders of the group said: “I will be talking about a scheme in Falkirk - it is a new concept on how to deal with the problem which I hope people will find interesting.”
