RESIDENTS in Wirral are fortunate in having so many amenities on our doorsteps – beaches, long coastal areas, fine parks, rural walking areas, easy access to Wales, the Lake District etc.

This scene sadly can be ruined by the selfish minority with their dogfouling and fly-tipping..

May I suggest that the council places skips in the most affected areas on Saturdays where residents can place old furniture mattresses etc.

As regards litter dropping on the pavements, I suggest people serving community order sentences be sent out in gangs to pick the litter up – I have seen prison gangs in the USA doing just that.

As regards dog-fouling I cannot think of any way of dealing with such owners – fines seem to have no effect – confiscation of the dog would be the only punishment which would hit hard.
