VERITY LUSH: Spending squillions to point out the blindingly obvious

Have your say

A message to all the disgusting people who are too lazy to pick up after their dogs – thank you for turning Gosport into Gospit.

The problem is getting worse and worse. It’s not just here in Priddy’s Hard where it seems a lot of people can’t be bothered to clean up, but across the town as a whole.
