WE were appalled to hear that dog fouling is causing such a problem for young footballers at Boxhill Recreation Ground in Abingdon (Oxford Mail, January 20) so we will send one of our environment wardens to investigate.

If there is a problem we will put notices around the park and chat to dog walkers to remind them of their responsibilities and the consequences of not clearing up dog mess, which includes a fine of up to £50 or prosecution.

If people have any information that could help us, they can call us anonymously on 01235 540555 Angela Lawrence, executive member responsible for environmental health Vale of White Horse District Council, Abingdon
