Dog fouling, Brookside

Date: 9 May 2023, 18 May 2023 and 29 May 2023

Watch the YouTube video of the dog fouling in Brookside:

Location: Green space by Brookside Community Centre
Description: We would like to speak to these men who have allowed their dogs to foul and did not clear up, in the park by Brookside Community Centre.

Dog poo bags are available for free from the community centre.

We need your help to identify the men on CCTV as prosecutions for dog fouling offences rely on witness statements and without your help these people will not be held accountable.

Dalford Court, Hollinswood

Date: Saturday 6 May 2023, just before 7pm

Watch the YouTube video of the fly-tip at Dalford Court:

Location: Dalford Court, Hollinswood
Description: We would like to speak to these three men caught on camera dumping a TV by some communal bins near the flats. They were driving a blue van which has a non-UK number plate: VL 88 MDV.

We believe the vehicle drove into Telford and Wrekin via the A41 and left via the M54 the same day. We are investigating whether the same van has driven to Dalford Court on more than one occasion to dump waste, creating an eyesore and costing you money to get it cleared away.

We need your help to identify the vehicle owner, or the men caught on CCTV. If you have any information, call our confidential helpline on 01952 388800 and quote Dalford Court, Hollinswood.

Remember leaving waste by a bin is fly-tipping. To get rid of bulky items book a collection or take it to our household recycling centres.

Brookside Community Centre Case number 12

Brookside Community Centre Case no 12

Date: 25 March 2022
Location: Brookside Community Centre - What3words location palacesupsettingearplugs palaces.upsetting.earplugs
Description: One of our CCTV cameras caught this owner allowing his dog to foul and did not clear it up from the pavement just outside the entrance to Brookside community centre.

Everyone has a legal duty to clean up after their dog if they have fouled in a public place. And ‘no poo bags’ is not a reasonable excuse for failing to remove the faeces.

Location: Willowfield, Woodside - What3words location mimemammalspegs

Our crews cleared the rubbish and have been looking through it for information that might help secure a prosecution.
