GLOW-in-the-dark posters showing a pair of menacing eyes are up around parks and beauty spots as a council clamps down on dog fouling.

The posters, proclaiming ‘We’re Watching You’, have been put up by Havant Borough Council and aim to deter people from not cleaning up after their pets, especially at night when dog fouling often occurs.

Councillor Tony Briggs, who is in charge of environment, helped to put a poster up at the Mill Pond in Emsworth and chatted to dog walkers.

The scheme is being run with Keep Britain Tidy.

Dog owner Allan White, from Emsworth, said: ‘This is a really good campaign – anything to encourage people to clean up after their dogs is good.’
