How not to fall foul

NEW orders for controlling dogs in Huntingdonshire come into effect on December 15, extending the areas where dogs must be kept on leads or where owners risk punishment for allowing them to foul.
The new orders transfer existing restrictions to new legislation and add parks and play areas that have been built since the previous orders were drafted.
So, for example, Wyton-on-the-Hill, which was previously covered by MoD-policed regulations, has been transferred to district council control since many of the homes at RAF Wyton were sold to the public.
John Allan, HDC's neighbourhoods intervention manager, said there had been overwhelming support for the new orders.
He said: "The old controls have been replicated with minor amendments to reflect representations made and developments that have taken place since the old controls were originally put in place.
"The public should notice little difference and where they could legitimately walk a dog off lead previously they should be able to continue to do so.
