Police have been forced to issue a second warning to dog walkers about driving to open spaces to exercise their pets.

On Friday (April 17) officers spotted a “number of dog walkers” in an area in Godmanchester and noted cars parked in Cow Lane.

In a social media post, Policing Huntingdonshire shared a picture of six cars parked up.

They said “although it is not illegal, driving for a prolonged period for only brief exercise is ‘not likely’ be a reasonable excuse”.

It comes as local residents contacted The Hunts Post earlier in the week to raise concerns about people meeting to walk their dogs in Cow Lane.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire police said: “Can we just ask where at all possible people avoid driving to take exercise.

“Driving anywhere to take your dog for a walk is to be discouraged.

“We noticed a number of dog walkers in Cow Lane, Godmanchester, who had ignored this direction.”
