A Slimming World consultant from Royston has spoken of her disgust after being met with a red carpet of dog poo when trying to promote her group.

Lynsey Langdon almost fell into the mess when she pitched up at the Burns Road bus stop on Monday morning.

She said: “It looked like a horse had done it. It’s terrible. What if a child was there and fell in it? I’m a dog owner myself, but I take responsibility for my dog, she’s a working cocker and she goes on really good walks, but I don’t let her off the lead on the Heath. I think there is a problem with some people not controlling their dogs in general. I uploaded the picture of the poo to Facebook, and had about 20 comments on it.

“People think they can get away with it – I’ve seen people checking that no one is about then walking away from their dog’s mess.”

Lynsey runs her group on Saturdays at 8.30am at Royston Catholic Church Hall.
