Have your say

POLICE say that they have no records of attempted dog thefts despite a rash of reports on social media.

Hampshire Constabulary have told people living in Fareham that they have looked at all incidents reported relating to dogs but have no records of attempted dog thefts. But they said they were aware of a suspicious man seen in Wallington around Water Meadows.

It comes as posts were made on Facebook about attempted thefts with people warning dog walkers about the dangers.
