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.
